Toasted Mushroom, Ham & Cheese Sandwich

Toasted Mushroom & Cheese Sandwich 006aSandwiches such as this are one of my go tos – they are great when you need a light meal for whatever reason.

We had been out for lunch so at 6 o’clock didn’t feel like anything at all, but by 8 o’clock felt peckish so from what was in the fridge and freezer this was a delicious light snack to keep us satisfied until morning.

Toasted Mushroom, Ham & Cheese Sandwich

Use a sandwich press if you have one for cooking this sandwich.

For each sandwich

butter, softened
1 large Portabello mushroom, thinly sliced
1 slice ham
few slices pickled jalapeno (optional)
50g grated Hohepa Herb & Garlic cheese

1              Melt a little butter in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add mushroom and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. Wipe pan clean.
2              Top one slice of bread with ham, jalapeno, if using,
mushroom and cheese, then with remaining slice of bread. Butter outside of sandwich.
3              Heat clean pan over a medium heat. Add sandwich, top with a weighed plate and cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden on one side. Turnover and repeat – the sandwich should be golden on the outside with the filling heat through and cheese melting.

Happy cooking and eating.
