Cheesy, saucy, amazing! This Cheesy Veg Footlong is a really sumptuous snack that holds a tasty assortment of sautéed veggies within it.

The combination of veggies is also unusual, including sweet corn, brinjals, celery and much more. The addition of tomato ketchup and mixed herbs gives it a punchy flavour, while milk imparts a nice, saucy texture to the filling.

Soft, fresh footlong bread packed with this filling, topped with cheese, and baked till it all fuses into one delectable form– what more could your palate seek!

Serve with a bowl of Macaroni Soup for a complete meal experience.
