Try meatless magic from the grill with this hearty veggie sandwich.
Updated Sep 9, 2010

Ingredients

  • 6 fresh large portabella mushroom caps
  • 1 large bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 large red onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 round focaccia bread (8 or 9 inch)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup basil pesto
  • 4 leaf lettuce leaves

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Brush mushrooms, bell pepper and onion with oil; sprinkle with seasoned salt. Place vegetables in grill basket (grill “wok”).
  • 2
    Place grill basket on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 10 to 12 minutes, shaking basket occasionally to turn vegetables, until bell pepper and onion are crisp-tender and mushrooms are just tender.
  • 3
    Cut bread horizontally in half. Mix mayonnaise and pesto; spread over cut sides of bread. Layer lettuce and grilled vegetables on bottom half of bread. Add top of bread. Cut into 6 wedges.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    When red bell peppers are in season, go ahead and use one. Either red or green bell pepper tastes great. Whole-grain sandwich buns can be used instead of the focaccia.
  • tip 2
    Clean mushrooms just before using by wiping them off with a damp paper towel.
