Sometimes, I feel lazy to cook a wholesome meal but still want something quick, easy & light to eat. In such situations, sandwiches rescues me as it fills up the tummy and is very easy to make. Sandwiches are scrumptious, healthy, requires less cooking effort, and wholesome food. There are various types of sandwiches made around the world. In this recipe, I have tried my hand on a different type of sandwich called as ‘open sandwich’.  Technically, sandwiches are closed or clubbed between two breads but lets try something else. Its an excellent recipe for breakfast or snacks which will probably be loved by different age groups, especially kids. This crispy sandwich can be relished hot with chutney or sauce. I have tried my hand on a healthy version of sandwich by using whole wheat bread and vegetables. I hope you’ll like it.

  • You can also bake these sandwiches in a preheated oven for 4-5 minutes.
  • If you want you can add cheese on top of it. That will taste more delicious.
