Vegetarian Dagwood Sandwiches
You’ll never miss the meat in this super-tall, two-cheese, flavor-stacked, nutrition-packed, high-rise vegetarian sandwich. Like Dagwood’s favorite snack in the Blondie comic, this double-decker is stacked — but with veggies instead of deli meats. To round out the filling satisfaction and flavor, this recipe alternates fresh produce with cheese, avocado, mustard, and a little mayo. And we pledge a half sandwich will squash any hunger. Then, for a bright finish, top halves with tart pickles.
Feel free to alter the veggies, layers, or even the height to suit your taste. But keep the multi-grain bread — the texture and flavor are a perfect fit.
Spread mayonnaise on 4 slices of bread; layer salad greens, avocado, bell pepper, Cheddar, and sprouts on top of 2 of the slices.
Spread mustard on remaining 2 slices of bread; place on top of sprouts, mustard sides up.
Top sandwiches with tomato, onion, cucumber, and Swiss cheese. Place reserved 2 slices of bread, mayonnaise sides down, on Swiss cheese. Cut sandwiches in half.
Pit the avocado half and cut flesh into slices with a knife. Scoop out the slices easily with a spoon.
Cut the vegetables into thin slices with a sharp knife ahead of time for easy assembly.
Stack the ingredients to create a well-balanced sandwich that ensures each bite is flavorful.
