Roasted Mushroom and Gouda Grilled-Cheese Sandwiches

Roasted Mushroom and Gouda Grilled-Cheese Sandwiches

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

Hearty roasted and sliced portobello mushrooms make these sandwiches particularly satisfying.
  • 2 large portobello mushrooms, stemmed
  • 2 Tbs. prepared balsamic vinaigrette
  • 8 tsp. melted butter, trans fat–free margarine, or olive oil, divided
  • 2 Tbs. finely chopped parsley
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbs.)
  • 8 slices whole-grain or country white bread
  • 3 oz. grated Gouda cheese or vegan cheese shreds, such as Daiya
  • 1 cup arugula

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush mushrooms with vinaigrette, place on baking sheet, and bake 15 minutes, turning once. Slice into 1/4-inch-thick strips.

2. Stir together butter, parsley, and garlic in bowl. Brush 4 bread slices with half of butter mixture, and set butter side down on baking sheet.

3. Sprinkle Gouda among bread slices on baking sheet. Top with mushroom strips, then arugula. Cover with remaining 4 bread slices. Brush sandwich tops with remaining butter mixture.

4. Heat large skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. Cook sandwiches in skillet 4 minutes, or until browned and crisp. Flip, and cook 3 minutes more, or until second side is browned.

Gouda sounds really good on grilled cheese.

Quick, easy, and tasty! Next time, I won't brush the bread with butter; It was annoyingly greasy. Instead, I would just rub the toasted bread with a cut garlic clove so the flavor would still be there without the mess.

OH MY! So delicious, was not expecting THAT! We used an artisan wheat bread with a crunchier crust, it was to die for. And quite easy to make.

This was good, and I actually don't generally like mushrooms. I would skip the butter on the bread next time, we didn't need it with our panini press. It would go great with a small bowl of tomato bisque to mix this up and round out the flavors!
