I have a new favorite sandwich that is more economical than my favorites of the past. Our garden is winding down as the weather cools, and we are bringing in tons of veggies. When the freezer was full, I wondered what to do with all those peppers and onions. This was a quickie solution, and it was amazingly satisfying!
Saute the peppers and onions until soft. Mix in one egg and scramble it until lightly done (don't let it get hard). Spread both slices of bread on one side with light mayonnaise and then pile on the eggs, peppers, and onions. Eat while still warm if possible.

A delicious toasted sandwich made with avocado and tomato.
This crunchy veggie sandwich is great on a hot summer day or any time that you want a light meal.
My Favorite Sandwich: It's a tie between a Mill Valley sandwich and a tomato sandwich. With Mill Valley (apparently a town in California where it originated), you use a very moist whole wheat bread, preferably home made.
For those of us who are struggling with special diets (or if you're just plain vegan) this makes for a yummy (but messy) sandwich.
A lady I used to know, told me a great way of getting your daily intake veggies. She said a lot of the time, she might not have the time to have a salad.
Many, many years ago I spent a few weekends with a schoolmate who lived on a farm in Holly Hill, FL. Her mother would fix these sandwiches on large slices of homemade white bread and we would picnic beside a nearby ditch (we called it a "canal") and imagine our future.
Cook vegetarian hot dogs per instructions on package, let cool. Chop or mince hot dogs to your liking and mix in mayo, along with any other condiment(s) of your choice (mustard, relish, ketchup, onions, olives, etc.).

Basically, you take marinated carrots, pressure cook them (steaming might work) until soft and place into hot dog buns with all the fixin's (kraut, onions, mustard or whatever you prefer).
