Not a diet sandwich...but yummy
Tried making a sandwich that I buy once in a while from an Italian Deli. ($9.99) I think the dip makes it.
French bread loaf or Italian loaf
procuitto or good deli ham
jar of Roasted red bell peppers
I like to make it putting the Roasted bells on bottom, then the procuitto or ham then the mozz. Drizzle just a little bit of the dipping sauce on the cheese. put the sandwich in a george forman grill or on a pan and make it as flat as you can. With the forman grill, just hold the grill lid dowm tightly. On a pan you can just use a smaller pan on top of the sandwich or?????. Once the bread starts to toast take it out and serve with the sauce. Yummm
Dip Sauce recipe (really easy to make)
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
2/3 cup aged balsamic vinegar
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons dried basil
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
In a bottle with a lid, mix the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, basil, oregano, thyme, kosher salt, and pepper. Seal bottle, and refrigerate mixture 8 hours, or overnight. Shake well before serving. Store in the refrigerator.

That sounds good! I make something similar at home. Instead of the peppers in a jar, you can take a bell pepper, quarter it, and rub olive oil on it & then put it on a pan & broil in the oven. When it starts to brown/singe, take it out and stick it in a bowl of ice water. The tough skin will come right off.
I'm going to have what you just mentioned tomorrow when I do a short carb up...except that I'm using pepper jack cheese I haven't toasted a sandwich in years. Thanks for the inspiration

"put the sandwich in a george forman grill or on a pan and make it as flat as you can"
Years ago I was in Toulon France and they had what we called "Smashed Sandwich's". I have no idea what the french call them but you could order them with pretty much whatever you wanted added and they would smash it like that. We would walk around (4 times bigger than the average frenchie) and eat the things until we were stuffed! They were unbelievable. I'd love to go back there some day but with airfare being what it is.... But that's another subject.
And yeah, your version sounds great. Gonna have to try that on my cheat days.
