Pan roasted veggies and hard boiled eggs sandwich - Grilled

Healthy and delicious breakfast sandwich (grilled) with pan roasted veggies and hard boiled eggs. So hearty and quite filling. Crispy pan fried potato slices and boiled egg pairs beautifully. Shredded carrots add a nice crunch. Perfectly seasoned with freshly ground black pepper and italian seasoning.  Loaded with nutrients and full on flavour. Caramelized Onions and gooey melthing cheese - insanely delicious !!!

Instead of making sandwich, you could use this roasted veggies as a filling in pita bread / roti along with a drizzle of yogurt or tahini sauce or mayonnaise. 

Yield : 1 Serving


  • 2 thick slices of sandwich bread ( I used homemade white loaf slices)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons of finely shredded carrots
  • 1 Tablespoon Green bell peppers chopped finely
  • 2 Tablespoon Onions chopped finely
  • 3 slices of a ripe tomato
  • 4 to 5 slices of potato + a big pinch of red chilli powder + salt+ freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 hard boiled egg
  • 1 slice of cheese
  • salt to taste
  • a big pinch of Italian seasiong / dried thyme / or any seasoning of your choice
  • 1/4 Teaspoon red chilli flakes
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter for spreading on the bread slices

Preparation :

1. Slice bread slightly thicker and apply butter on both sides of the each slice. Set aside
2. Wash a small sized potato well and slice it into circles (slightly thicker). Sprinkle red chilli powder, salt and freshly ground black pepper on the potato slices and set them aside
3. Keep one egg outside refrigerator overnight and bring it to room temperature. Hard boil the eggs and carefully peel remove their outer skin. Make sure not to break the egg. Once the egg is cooled completely , slice the egg into circles. Set aside


1. In a pan / skillet / tawa place the sliced potatoes we prepared at step number two


2. Keep the pan over medium speed. Now using a spoon pour olive oil gently over the potatoes and also along the sides 


3. Let the potatoes get stir fried for 2 minutes. flip them over and cook on the other side for 2 more minutes


4. Once the potatoes are done, move the potato to the side of the pan away from direct heat

5. In a the same pan with remaining oil , add onions, green bell peppers, tomato slices. Do not add everything together on the same place in the skillet. Just spread the veggies on the skillet and stir fry


6. Sprinkle salt and italian seasoning over the veggies and roast them on medium flame for 3 minutes until the onions are slightly caramelized and tomatoes & bell peppers have a nice char on them


7. Switch off the flame. Roasted Veggies for the sandwich is ready

8. Time to assemble everything on the sandwich bread

9. Take the buttered bread we prepared at step number one of 'preparation' 


10. Place a cheese slice over one bread slice


11. Now place the roasted veggies over the cheese


12. Place sliced hard boiled eggs on the top of roasted veggies. I did not discard egg yolk. You could discard yolk and use only the egg white
13. Finally sprinkle shredded carrots and then place another bread slice over and press the sandwich gently. If you like more cheese, place another cheese slice after you place the sliced egg and then cover it with the bread slice


14. Grill the sandwich until it has a lovely golden color on the top. I grilled it in the sandwich maker. You can grill it in the oven or over the griller
15. Serve hot with ketchup or dip

Note : I used potato, tomato, onion, shredded carrots and bell peppers. I love hard boiled eggs and crispy potato combo. You could use your favorite vegetables like parboiled sweet corn , steamed broccoli
