How to Make a Grilled Vegetable Goat Cheese Sandwich
There are a couple secrets to taking this classic grilled vegetable sandwich up a notch. First is the fresh herbs in the goat cheese. It is a simple step but the homemade herbed goat cheese is like nothing else.
Hand me ALL THE CHEESE, please!
To prep the grilled vegetables, I brush them with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
I then heat up the grill to medium and spread all the veggies out. Actually the Hubs does that. 🙂
That’s the hubs at work!—>
The second secret for this sandwich is not moving the veggies after you put them on the grill until it is time to flip. Not moving the vegetables gives you these pretty grill marks! And call me crazy, but I think pretty food tastes better.
Finally, stack the sandwich high!
I might have gotten a little overzealous with my slices of bread here. I was going for dramatic effect. Feel free to slice yours normal size 🙂
The result is absolute Grilled Vegetable Goat Cheese Sandwich perfection.
It’s a hearty meal and that both the hubs and I really enjoyed!

- Grilled Peach Caprese Salad
- 4 ounces goat cheese removed from fridge and allowed to soften
- 1 tablespoon fresh chives chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil chopped
- ½ tablespoon fresh oregano chopped
- 8 thick slices of whole grain bread
- 6 ounces Portobello mushroom caps sliced
- 1 big red bell pepper sliced into large pieces
- 1 zucchini sliced into squares the size of the bread
- ½ tablespoon olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- ½ cup baby spinach
- Mix all ingredients for the goat cheese. This can be done ahead of time or just before you make the sandwiches.
- Lay the vegetables out on a cookie sheet and brush them with the olive oil. Season with the salt and pepper. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
- Heat grill to medium heat. Place vegetables on grill and don’t move them. Flip them after 2-3 minutes. The mushrooms and zucchini should be done in 4-5 minutes. The bell pepper should be done in 5-7 minutes. You want the vegetables to be tender, but not soggy.
- Stack the sandwich! Start with the baby spinach, then add the vegetables. Spread the goat cheese over the top piece of bread and add it to the top.
