Potato Sandwich Recipe

This Potato Sandwich is my childhood favorite. It is one of my favorite sandwich to make. Potato Sandwich is quick, simple and easy to make and it requires minimum ingredients. This Potato Sandwich recipe is vegan, vegetarian and also gluten free (if you use gluten-free bread). This potato sandwich is perfect for any time of the day. I love to enjoy it for breakfast, lunch and even dinner. Potato sandwich goes really well with green chutney, tomato ketchup or even Indian chai or coffee.

For the stuffing of this potato sandwich, I have used boiled potatoes along with chopped bell pepper, onion, garlic and ginger. All these veggies are very healthy for us. This stuffing for the potato sandwich is also very customizable. You can add many other veggies along with potatoes like grated carrot, finely chopped cabbage or even grated tofu or Indian paneer. Adding cheese in the stuffing is also a very good option and it taste very delicious.

Potato Sandwich is an easy breakfast or snack recipe made with boiled potatoes along with other veggies and spices. This sandwich is delicious and very filling, all time family favorite dish. You can enjoy potato sandwich when its hot or you can even cool it slightly and pack it for lunch box as well. I toasted this sandwich on the skillet over the stove. But you can use sandwich maker, griller or even panini maker. 

For this Potato Sandwich, I have used whole wheat bread since it has more nutrients compare to regular white bread. But feel free to use bread of your choice. If you are gluten intolerant, go for gluten free bread. The great thing about this potato sandwich is that you can make it open faced or even closed one. If you have a party at home, then you can make open faced sandwich, cut it into strips and service it. It will be a great party snack.
