What You'll Need
  • 2 medium Yukon Gold potatoes (1 pound), sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 4 red bell peppers, cut into planks
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 garlic clove, finely grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon white-wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 4 sandwich buns, split
  • 1 plum tomato, halved
  • 4 ounces Manchego, sliced
  1. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high. Fill a medium saucepan to a depth of 2 inches to a boil over high heat. Arrange potatoes in a steamer basket and set the basket in the saucepan. Cover and steam the potatoes until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together mayonnaise, garlic, vinegar and paprika in a large bowl; season with salt and pepper. Butter the cut sides of sandwich buns. Toss bell pepper with oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Toss cooked potatoes with paprika mayonnaise until coated. Lightly oil grill grates; add potatoes and bell pepper to the grill. Cook potatoes and bell pepper until tender and charred, turning once, about 8 minutes. Add sandwich buns, buttered-side down, to grill to char, 2 minutes.
  4. Rub cut side of bottom bun with cut tomato. Make sandwiches out of peppers, grilled potatoes and sliced Manchego.

This turned out really well and will definitely make this again! We added a fried egg on top- delicious with and without. Also didn't have mayo for the marinade, added olive oil instead and seemed to work just fine.
