What's For Dinner Wednesday: The Big Zeus (Zucchini Sandwich)

The Big Zeus

Why Zeus?  Well because I couldn't think of anything else that started with a "Z"!  But this sandwich is big and tasty, hearty enough to feed an army of Olympians.  A heavenly combination of crisp zucchini pancakes, golden toasted bread and creamy pesto mayo so yummy it is bound to be the official sandwich of Mt. Olympus.


1 Golden Zucchini Pancake from Old Fashioned Kitchen (in your grocer's freezer) - they are savory, not sweet.
2 slices of Dave's Killer Bread 21 Whole Grain THIN sliced
2 TBS of Mayo
1 TBS of Pesto
2 slices of tomato
Thin sliced red onion
Slice of Cheddar Cheese

Butter for frying pancake.


1. Melt butter in cast iron skillet over medium heat.  Cook zucchini pancake in butter about 5 minutes per side.

2.  Mix mayo with pesto and set aside.

3. Toast bread. Spread warm bread with pesto mayo.

4.  Place zucchini pancake on bread, top with tomato slices and thin sliced red onion and cheese.  Place second piece of bread over filling and EAT.

*Instead of pesto mayo you can also try garlic mayo or tzatziki sauce.

Yummy with a fruit salad.

Zeus's girl, yes? Makes you my half sister. Used to be a tree, didn't you? Glad you're back. I hate it when pretty girls turn into trees. Man, I remember one time—”

“Zeus, first cause, prime mover; for what thing without Zeus is done among mortals?”
