Ingredients used to make stuffing
Mushroom – Low calorie and nutritious mushrooms made this sandwich delicious. I used my mini chopper to finely chop the mushrooms because my husband don’t like mushrooms at all. So I always use minced or finely chopped mushrooms in some dishes and he always happily enjoy the dish without recognizing mushrooms. But you can use thinly sliced mushrooms if you want.
Baby Spinach – This leafy green vegetable taste great. Tender leaves are easy to cook and give a slightly sweet taste. And it also has so many health benefits. I blanched the spinach leaves before using.
How to blanch spinach
Rinse the spinach leaves well to remove all the dirt. Heat sufficient water in a pot. Keep a pot with cold water ready. When water starts to rolling boil add the spinach. Let it boil for 3-4 minutes. Leaves will becomes dark in colour after blanching. Immediately remove the spinach from hot water and place in the pot of ice cold water to retain the colour. Take out from the water before chopping.
Onion And Garlic to enhance the taste and flavour.
Sweet corn – Succulent and delicious boiled sweet corn taste mildly sweet and also enhance the taste of your stuffing.
Scallion – Mild taste and flavour of this green long leaves will also enhance the taste and flavour of stuffing.
Salt – Salt used to give savoury taste. Add salt according to your taste.
Black pepper powder – Use black pepper powder to give a lovely aroma and mild heat. You can also use freshly crushed black pepper. Add black pepper powder 1/2 to 1 teaspoon as per your taste.
Fresh cream – Little fresh cream will give a creaminess and enhance the taste. I used Amul fresh cream.
Tomato ketchup – tomato ketchup will give a sweet tangy taste to the stuffing.
Sriracha sauce – Sriracha sauce added to give a spicy kick. Spicy sweet tangy taste of this sauce will make your stuffing lipsmackingly delicious. You can also use any chilli garlic sauce if you don’t have sriracha sauce.
Chilli flakes – Little chilli flakes used to make the stuffing spicy. But its optional, you can skip it if you want.
Cheese – I used cheddar and mozzarella cheese mixed. I have a pack a mixture of both cheese. And this taste great. Used to give a cheesy delicious taste. You can use processed cheese or any cheese of your choice. Used 1/2 cup in stuffing and some to sprinkle over the stuffing. You can always use more cheese if you want. Add as much cheese as you like.
Butter And Olive oil – Used 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil for sautéing the stuffing. You can use only butter or only oil if you want. You can also use any other oil instead of olive oil.
Bread – You can use white bread, brown bread, multigrain bread, gluten free bread or any bread of your choice.
If you have the stuffing ready then you can make the sandwiches in a jiffy. You can make the stuffing one day before and store in refrigerator to make the sandwiches for breakfast or lunch. Even you don’t need any chutney or sauce in side to serve these sandwiches or to spread on bread. Because stuffing taste delectable on it’s own. Sauteed mushrooms and spinach and fried onion garlic with sweet corn, scallion, oregano and sriracha sauce, ketchup, butter, cheese and little fresh cream made these sandwich stuffing perfectly spicy creamy cheesy and lipsmackingly delicious.
