Key Ingredients:

These open sandwiches are very flavourful and delicious


  • Hot dog buns 2
  • Tomatoes, blanched, peeled and chopped ½ cup
  • Garlic cloves, finely chopped 3
  • Mozzarella cheese, grated 1 cup
  • Salt to taste
  • Red chilli flakes 2 tsps
  • Green olives, pitted and sliced in rings 10
  • Black olives, pitted and sliced in rings 10
  • Olive oil 2 tsps


  • Halve each hot dog bun horizontally and further cut into 2.
  • Toast only the inner part of buns slightly on a hot non-stick frying pan for 2-3 minutes so that the toppings do not make the bread soggy.
  • Mix garlic and tomatoes in a bowl and spread this mixture on the toasted side of the buns.
  • Sprinkle grated mozzarella cheese and salt on top as mozzarella cheese tends to be slightly bland.
  • Sprinkle chilli flakes. Keep green and black olive rings on top of the cheese on each sandwich.
  • Heat olive oil in a non-stick pan, place these open sandwiches in it, cover and toast for 5-6 minutes on low heat.
  • Serve hot.
