Ham and Vegetable Sandwiches on Ciabatta

I'm always looking for new sandwich variations when I am packing lunches and this one came from a need to use a lot of vegetables that had gathered in the fridge.
 I sauteed 1 red pepper, 1 green pepper and 1 medium onion in a bit of olive oil.

 I sprinkled it with salt and pepper, granulated garlic and some oregano. I also sauteed some sliced eggplant, mushrooms and kale.

 I baked these ciabatta rolls yesterday. They are very light and airy.

 Split the rolls and spread one side lightly with mayo and one side with a whole grain mustard. Layer on some thin cheddar.

Add a thin layer of good baked ham. 
 Add layers of the cooked vegetables.  I used the sauteed kale leaves like lettuce.  They have wonderful texture and flavor and really add to this sandwich.

Press them firmly and wrap in plastic wrap and let them come to room temp before eating.
