Aloo Sandwich/Potato Sandwich

This is the most comforting sandwich with a tasty potato filling! This is very easy to prepare and very tasty. This can be served for any meal. The filling is vegan, but butter is used to toast the sandwich in this recipe. For a vegan sandwich, use plant based butter or oil.

The potato filling is always magical and you can serve oohs and aahhhs when this is set on the table. You'll get a big hug from your kids when you serve this. Yes, everyone loves this sandwich. In fact, I double this recipe always. Keep the filling in fridge, and is great to fix a meal when you have a crazy schedule. This is comfort food and no one would ever complain for serving this again. You’ll be having requests to serve this again and again. 

This can be great to pack as lunch. When the filling is ready in fridge, this helps in makeing these  hot for dinner, when you have time crunch to cook after a long day. This is great for a weekend brunch too and helps you enjoy a lazy weekend . In small portion, this can a good sack for kids returning home hungry after school or hungry. This is amazing with tomato soup too!

I have used flavored butter, spicy mint butter, in this recipe. Plain butter or vegan butter also works great. The mint in the butter added tons of flavor to the sandwich. I have used Oat Nut Bread, but any bread will work grea for this sandwich. The filling quantity can be adjusted, that is, depending on how much you want to fill, 5-6 sandwiches can be made. 

Serve this as such of with ketchup, this is going to be loved. My kids love to dunk in ketchup. I love with with green mint-cilantro chutney! This can be served with ranch dip too and would be lip-smacking delicious! YUM!

We love sandwiches and grilled cheese! Kids go crazy with one if with the Italian Style Ricotta Spinach Grilled Cheese! Spinach snd Red Pepper grilled cheese is amazing to serve as such of with soup.
