Meaty Dill Sandwich with Mezzetta Peppers


It’s summer time and cold cuts hit our menu fairly regularly!  For instance this weekend, I think we had sandwiches every single day!  Not always for dinner mostly for lunch, but it is just too hot outside to turn the oven on, so cold cuts it is.

I love to use a variety of veggies and toppings for our sandwiches along with one of my favorite dill spreads!  If you have been around even a week or two, you will quickly find out I have an unhealthy obsession with dill!  I could eat it daily.  I will say this summer is not nearly as bad as last summer when I was pregnant!  I could of just drank the juice right out of the pickle jar.

Mezzetta Peppers

This week though, I ventured to Walmart to pick up some Mezzetta Deli-Sliced Peppers for our sandwiches.  I decided on the Tamed Jalapeño!  Yes, tamed.

My mouth could not take untamed peppers.  That’s just a scary thought.

I have a whole freezer of untamed peppers from our garden last year.  I won’t touch them because I will breathe fire.

Luckily…these were tame.

I can handle tame.

Mezzetta Peppers

Not only are they tame but they are perfectly sliced and ready to toss on a delicious wrap or sandwich!

I decided to top these on my husband’s sandwich.  One of my favorite ways to serve up a sandwich is on marbled pumpernickel and rye bread.  This bread was my all time favorite up until I went gluten free.  Now, my sandwich was served on gluten free bread while I had to stand there and smell and take pictures of this fabulous melt in your mouth bread…not fair.

I created a Meaty Dill Sandwich and the Mezzetta Peppers completed the sandwich with a flavorful crunch!

Are you ready to add a little extra flavor to your cold cuts?  Add some ‘tamed’ peppers to them and you will be set!

Now…it’s time, go make your lunch early!  What’s your favorite sandwich?

Happy Eating!

    Great idea of putting peppers on a sandwich for a little spice :)

    My husband loves having peppers on his sandwiches, but it’s always in the realm of “untamed”. I’d love to try these Tamed Jalapeño Peppers for myself – they look delicious and a great change up from my usual pickles!

    I would have never thought to put peppers on a sandwich, but this looks yummy. As long as they aren’t blazing hot, I would like them. Regardless of their heat, I know my husband would love them!

    My son just saw these photos and he’s begging for a sandwich with peppers. Guess I need to head to Walmart and grab him some!

    I have 4 kids and they really love hot peppers! I lot of Mom’s I know think their kids would never like a bit of spice, but these kids surprise you. My kids would be all over these sandwiches. Yum!

    My family would love these! My hubby is always asking me to buy jalapenos, but I definitely need “tame” ones. I’m pinning this recipe so I can find it easily again.

    Oh, tamed jalapeno! I would so go for that. They look so very fresh. I love jalapeno flavor but not the intensity of the heat. We would use these on Fire Hawaiian Pizza for SURE and I bet my husband would use them in his tacos. Great pics, by the way!

    I love jalapenos…hot and mild. That dill dip sounds amazing!

    I am a pepper head…..I love hot or not peppers on my sandwiches, subs or rolls. They add a little spice to my life!

    Oh this looks so good! I love hot peppers on my sandwiches!!!! Sounds fantastic!

    I’m not a hot pepper gal, but most of the people in my family are. I’m sure they’d LOVE these as little mini sandwiches with a pasta salad to go with it…Hmmm….

    I also love pickles. I usually put them in my spaghetti meal. Anyway, great job on the sandwich. Looks very yummy but quite healthy at the same time.
