Grilled Smokey Mushroom Sandwich

Grilled Smokey Mushroom Sandwich

This recipe was born on an evening where groceries were badly needed.  The solution to our grocery shortage was grilled cheese, but it needed to be spruced up.  The result was an absolutely delicious sandwich.  Give it a try!   

Serves 2


½ lb fresh chestnut mushrooms (oyster and shiitake can be substituted with stems removed)

4 pieces of bread

Ghee, 1 Tbsp. (or olive oil can be used)

Butter or margarine, 2 tsp.

2 slices of thick cut provolone

2 sticks of smoked string cheese (other smoked cheeses work too)

Fresh onion, 1/3 cup, chopped

Fresh garlic, 1-2 cloves, minced

Dried thyme, 1 tsp.

Red pepper flakes to taste




Sauté lightly chopped chestnut mushrooms on medium-high heat in a small amount of ghee.  Make sure the mushrooms are well cooked.  Add fresh onion and garlic for the last 5 min of cooking.  Add dried thyme, red pepper flakes, some salt and pepper, and some butter for flavor.  Cook for a couple of minutes to hydrate the dry ingredients and help mix the flavors.  Boom!  Your mushrooms are ready.  For more pan frying details, follow the link to Pan Frying Mushrooms.

Set your mushrooms aside.  Butter one side of each piece of bread.  Put the bottom piece of bread, butter side down, in a fry pan.  Place the provolone on the bread, with strings of smoked string cheese evenly spaced on top of the provolone.  Use one stick of string cheese per sandwich.  Next, place half of the fried mushrooms on each sandwich in an even layer.  Put the other piece of buttered bread on top of everything, butter side up.  Set your stove on medium heat and let it cook until the bottom side is golden brown.  Flip and cook the other side until its golden brown. Your sandwich is done!

This sandwich becomes even more delicious when dipped in ketchup.  Try it out!  A recipe invented out of a need for dinner ended up tasting so good that we needed to share this recipe with you!
