Nigel Slater toasted mushroom sandwich

Nigel Slater toasted mushroom sandwich is packed with flavour – melted cheese with mushrooms on toasted sourdough bread.


for the filling

  • 250 grams mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons rape seed oil
  • 8 thin slices sourdough bread, 10 x 12 cm
  • 60 grams cheddar cheese, grated, I used Dorset Drum Cheddar Käse *
  • salt
  • pepper

  1. Warm the oil in a frying pan and add the mushrooms, season with salt an pepper and cook for 10 minutes or so over a moderate heat till soft.
  2. Using a draining spoon, pile them on to evenly onto 4 slices of bread. Scatter over the grated cheese. Place another slice of bread on top and press down lightly.
  3. Wipe the pan out lightly with kitchen roll, because you need a thin film of oil to fry the sandwiches. Place the sandwiches in the pan, letting it cooc for a few minutes till the bread is golden and the cheese is starting to melt. Turn the sandwiches and cook the other sides. Perfection is when the bread ist lightly crisp, the mushrooms soft and the cheese oozing.

total: 30 minutes
preparation: 10 minutes

    My family loved this sandwich when I made a variation of it a few weeks ago. Your post is reminding me to make it again soon, but this time with cheddar.
