My daughter made these sandwiches for us the other night and they were incredible. I couldn’t believe all the flavor.
The mushrooms had a slightly tangy flavor from a splash of vinegar. Since you don’t use any meat, you can afford to splurge on gourmet mushrooms. I’d not tried Manchego cheese before & it’s wonderful.
This sandwich has 16.8 grams of protein, pretty substantial for a meatless sandwich. Our daughter served it with light potato salad from Cooking Light. She cooks almost exclusively from Cooking Light & manages to keep her figure that way. (I have no affiliation with Cooking Light.) If you have big eaters, you might want to make two sandwiches for them. We were satisfied with one sandwich each. Each sandwich is only 352 calories and is loaded with mushrooms, which we loved. You could stretch out the mushrooms over more sandwiches as long as you add enough cheese to the recipe. You could cut each sandwich into fourths to be appetizers if you like. So yummy!
From the reviews:“Outstanding . . it is simply delicious! . . . It is pretty simple once the prep work is done. Served with broiled asparagus or a nice salad and you have a complete meal!”“Great recipe! Was really looking forward to this as Manchengo is a delicious cheese. Could have used more cheese, but it melted wonderfully!. Very easy recipe. We will make it again.”
One reviewer said it was better than any sandwich he’d had at a well-known upscale sandwich shop. How great that we can make these any time!
