Crunchy Pan-Grilled Sandwich

I love making weekend meals very exciting for my family. Weekends are the only days we as a family eat breakfast, lunch and dinner together, so we all look forward to what is going to be on the table. Now that my mom is around, I even make it more exciting especially for her. Last weekend, I made crunchy pan-grilled sandwiches, here is how I went about it...

Here's What You Need:

  1. Wholemeal bread (any kind of bread would do really)
  2. soft cheese (any cheese of your choice)
  3. Tomatoes - sliced  (optional)
  4. Salad leaves ( spinach, lettuce, mixed salad leaves...)
  5. Roasted meat slices (chicken or beef or cod fish fillet)
  6. 1 tablespoon Hot maggi liquid seasoning
  7. 1 teaspoon garlic granules
  8. Olive oil 


Step 1 

Season the cod fish fillets with ingredients 6 and 7 *if you are using frozen fish, please thaw overnight*

Step 2

In a grill pan add a teaspoon of olive oil, allow to heat up and then place the fish on the heated pan. Grill each side for 2 minutes. Remove on to a plate, then set aside.

Step 3

If you are using roasted chicken breast slices or beef slices, use half teaspoon of olive oil but then you grill for one minute or couple of seconds on each side.
**use kitchen tissue to wipe through the pan so as the clean off any crumbs for the fish**

Step 4 - the fun part

Add a little drop of olive oil on the pan, place one slice of bread on the pan, then spread little cheese on it, followed by a slice of your meat or  fish fillet, tomatoes, little cheese, salad leaves, another slice of meat/fish, little cheese and the cover with another slice of bread. ***you can arrange your stuffings whichever way you want or like them***

Step 5

At this point, turn on the gas heat (high), then use a spatula to press down the bread. Grill for about 1-2 minutes , then use the spatula to hold the entire sandwich up from the pan, add little olive oil and then place the other side on the grill pan. Grill for about a minute, because at this point the pan is extremely hot, so it grills quicker.

Step 6

Repeat the process for the rest of the sandwiches but remember to always turn off or reduce the gas heat while placing the the sandwich on the grill pan.

Thank you and enjoy!!!
