Mushroom Melts Sandwich | Grilled Cheese Mushroom


Mushroom Melts Sandwich – these sandwiches are full-o-flavor! I just love mushrooms, don’t you? The umami that they lend to a wide array of dishes is irreplaceable. I enjoy all sorts of mushrooms, but my favorite has gotta be the swiss brown mushrooms! They are reliable in most of my recipes, with just the right amount of umami oomph, and not pushing anyones buttons. So, this sandwich is something I came up with for a breakfast sandwich and it was a total winner. As I always do, I quickly jotted the amounts of things I used, because you know me – my memory is awful!  Another one for my recipe box. Keeper for sure. It’s quick and tasty – try it and let me know won’t you?

  • 1 generous cup of sliced swiss brown mushrooms

  • Place one slice of bread followed by half the mushroom filling.
  • Sprinkle freshly ground black pepper if desired.
  • Place about 8 small cherry tomato slices over the mushroom layer.

  • When the bottom is grilled, turn over and grill the sandwich on the other side, pressing gently to help seal the melted cheese.
  • Cut into wedges and serve IMMEDIATELY.

  • I like to use ‘natural’ colby or cheddar slices for this sandwich.
  • You could use other herbs instead of parsley, although I rather like the combination.
