Halloumi cheese sandwich recipe - Bread Sandwich recipes - Breakfast, brunch recipes

My sons were not fond of any other sandwich except peanut butter, butter toast, or Nutella. However, these changed in the last couple of years. They tried different sandwiches with different loaves of bread. During school days, they don't pack any Indian breakfast. So when I saw this grilled paneer recipe on the net I know it will go well with the sandwich. I have added roasted bell pepper, mushroom, eggplant and avocado. But you can include your favourite vegetables like lettuce, tomato etc. Also for the spread, I have used pesto. You can use green chutney or you can skip it.

Bread of your choice for the sandwich
Halloumi Cheese - 100g (slice it into thin slices of your preferred size and shape)
Eggplant - 1 (small size)
