Mushroom Sandwich Recipe Indian: Sandwiches are the perfect light meal. You can load them up with veggies and meats of your choice. Add that guilty pleasure of cheese…and they still are healthy. I mean mostly :P
Of Late, I have developed this whoa liking for mushrooms. It is quite weird actually. I think it has to do with Navs . She has this crazy life long love with Mushrooms and being her friend and flatmate…I think she has passed it on to me. :P Today, I have jotted down a recipe of my favorite fully loaded mushroom – olive -tomato extravaganza. I add a bit of tomato and olives to jazz it up a bit. I f you area vegetarian, you will love this. If you are a non vegetarian…you will still love it :P No choice really,its that simple and yummy! ;)
Ingredients you need for Mushroom Sandwich :
- 3 Slices of Bread of choice . I am using a regular sandwich bread here.
- Half a cup of freshly grated cheese. Again your choice. I am going with sharp cheddar cheese
- A pinch of salt to taste
- Chili flakes- adjust hotness as per taste
- A quarter tea spoon dried oregano
- Ketchup or Pizza Sauce- A tablespoon per sandwich
- Fresh Button Mushrooms
- 2 tablespoons pitted and cut olives “(green or black as per your choice)
- A small sized tomato thinly sliced
Method of Making Mushroom Sandwich :
I take three slices of bread. Simply because its more filling and it allows me to load more veggies. What I do is , lightly toast the slices first. This way, they will not turn soggy with the filling.
Next, I apply a bit of cheese on two slices of bread. The cheese acts as a base and binding agent-besides its obvious yum factor :P This prevents the sandwich from turning soggy. Preheat the oven / microwave at convection mode at 250 F.
I load on the mushrooms and olives one one slice of bread.I then apply a bit of tomato basil sauce(feel free to use ketchup ) just add a dash of seasoning of salt, chili flakes and oregano. Top it up with shredded cheese of choice. Cheat a bit on the next slice. Add all the veggies, besides mushroom that you want, the same seasoning. Just make the cheese content half. Now proceed to pile them on like a double decker!
Next, I bake these sandwiches for 15 minutes at 250 F. This cooks the veggies inside evenly, and crisps up the bread. The cheese has melted into oeey gooey deliciousness…heaven on a plate. Just, just have it all right!!
Use this an evening snack or as a filling breakfast. You will love it! I am personally going to enjoy this with Neha’s Ginger Mint Chai today ;)
