The Zucchini Grinder Sandwich is a great way to use your garden zucchini. These delicious zucchini sandwiches are easy to make!
**We posted this recipe a while back but recently updated the pictures! Enjoy!**
The Zucchini Grinder Sandwich is literally one of the easiest HOT veggie sandwiches you can make! This fun sandwich started way back for us.
I am talking about when my oldest was just a baby. I am not going to date myself too much with this age but it was nearly a decade ago!
Our sweet friend who was watching my little guy one day a week (so I could slip into the office) made us dinner. She was so creative and made a recipe similar to this one. We LOVED it to much that we kept it around and make it every year!
What Do I Need To Make This Zucchini Grinder Sandwich?
This zucchini grinder sandwich is simple to make. It uses onions, zucchini and sauce. Oh, yes and the bun.
- spaghetti sauce
- cheese (optional)
- gluten free buns
So it starts with some zucchini. You can get your zucchini at the store or from your back yard garden!
So how is that garden growing? In my garden my zucchinis are starting to really get abundant.
As you get an overflow of zucchini you might be stretched for recipes to use them in!
How To Make These Zucchini Sandwiches
The best part about these sandwiches is that they couldn't be easier!
Saute your onions and zucchini until soft.
Add enough spaghetti sauce to coat the zucchini and onions. Heat until warm.
Spoon onto bread and top with cheese (optional)
While the ingredients are simple the zucchini grinder sandwich is filling. If you are a cheese lover, you can top your zucchini grinder with cheese.
HINT: Construct the sandwiches and wrap in foil. Place in the oven at 250 degrees F for 15 minutes for cheese to melt (If you used cheese). Or to simply keep the sandwiches warm.
I even made a video to show you how easy this Zucchini Grinder Sandwich is!
