I made these last night. They were so delishes. The bell peppers were so sweet. I will definitely be making these again.

I can't have broccoli in a sandwich. It is just wrong in my opinion. LOL But, if it is your thing. . . However, I swapped it out in favor of onions. This is one of my favorites. Saute the onions and mushrooms and cover with butter. Adding the bells are fine too.

The roasted veggies were so good! Started eating them right from the pan. Would definitely toast the bread before putting on the toppings as another reviewer suggested. The garlic mayonnaise and moisture from the veggies made the toasts come out a little bit soft. Very tasty recipe!

This was delicious but I made some changes. I bought a medium- large head of broccoli and I'm glad I did because a small one would not have been enough. I used more olive oil than one tablespoon, drizzling a little on each time I tossed it, and 8 ounces of gouda instead of four. I was able to make 8 servings. This is excellent as an appetizer and filling as a meal itself. I will definitely make this again!

This was sooo good! I made it for my fiance and I yesterday and he was raving about it the whole time. This was our first time tasting gouda cheese, too, and it was so delicious. I'll definitely be making this again! The only thing I did differently, was used a thin sliced Italian bread because I couldn't find the country bread. It came out a little soft. It was just crispy around the edges. So next time if I use the same bread, again, I will be toasting it a bit before I put the toppings on.

This recipe is great as is, but also works really well as an appetizer. Just chop the toppings into smaller pieces, and serve on baguette slices or small pita quarters. I also grill on my pizza stone rather than the baking sheet for nice, crusty bread.

This was awesome! I follow the recipe exactly, except when they are done I like to drizzle them with balsamic vinegar. This is my family's favorite meat-free lunch!
