I made this on Saturday. As I was making it thought it would be bland. But when my daughter and I sat down to eat. All we kept saying was "AMAZING". It was much more flavorful than I would have thought. I followed pretty close to the recipe. I didn't have white Balsamic though I think it would have helped as it was hard to see if the buns were toasting. And my rosemary plant hasn't taken off yet so I used dried. But will do this again. Can't wait until zucchini and eggplant get really cheap. I did think some baby bellas would be good on this as well.
Grilled Farmers' Market Sandwiches

We did exactly what this dish is named--grilled a bunch of stuff from the farmer's market. However, we did the down-market what-other-stuff we had on hand version. It was delicious regardless, can't imagine what it would be like with high quality bread and cheese. We did it with leftover potato rolls and no cheese. Added vidalia onions instead of red, which were FANTASTIC. We didn't even have basil. Used regular balsalmic. We just toasted the bread on the grill, didn't put vinegar on them. Any good mild cheese (excepting like cheddar) would be fine. I actually served these as a side with chicken (our rolls were really small).

Really fresh and tasty. One thing I might do next time - grill all the veggies then use my panini maker to finish off the sandwich. Might help to smoosh everything together so it is a little less messy to eat.

These were perfect as a vegetarian option at a BBQ for July 4. We sliced them into smaller portions to make them a little more "finger food" friendly, especially for the meat eaters who wanted in on these! I added a balsamic reduction over the veggies for a little extra flavor (just a cup of balsamic vinegar boiled down to about 1/3 cup. YUM.

Quite a mouthful, but delicious. I have made these several times this summer. I do not put on the second layer of veggies or grill the sandwiches to melt the cheese and it turns out great. They are so flavorful and filling.

Incredibly delicious! I used focaccia instead of ciabbata and it really complemented the flavors of the sandwich well. The sandwich is really filling, but it is not too heavy. This is an absolute favorite in my household!

One of my favorite meals!

I have had this recipe in my "To Make" folder for a while just waiting until I had all ingredients on hand. And last night was the night! I didn't have white balsamic, so I subbed white wine vinegar with a pinch of sugar. My husband loved them so much, I made him another sandwich after the kids went to bed. I would use more onions next time b/c they were so good.

OMG! If I were strictly vegetarian, I could eat this every night! The combination of grilled veggies, fresh herbs, and melty cheese is to die for. We used Havarti, which seemed to compliment the veggies very well. We didn't layer the veggies as suggested, but simply laid everything out buffet style to create our own sandwiches. We will make these often.
