Mushrooms and Blue Cheese on Ciabatta – perfect for a back-to-school lunch!!!


Light lunches or a mid-day( at 2 o’clock when school comes out) snack is always a problem for me, because we have our dinner at night, so it can’t be too heavy, but the children do want something a little more substantial. Well today they were in luck! I had some mushrooms and blue cheese and in no time I had these delicious open sandwiches ready!

Mushroom and Blue Cheese on Toasted Ciabatta

Ingredients – for about 4 open sandwiches

250g mushrooms – sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove of garlic – crushed
125ml cream
blue cheese – use as mush as you like – I used about 50gr
crushed black pepper

Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the mushrooms and the garlic. Sautee until it browns slightly. Add the cream and reduce a bit. Crumble the cheese in the sauce and allow it to melt. Season with salt and lots of black pepper. Serve with baby gem lettuce on thick slices of toasted ciabatta.
