Roasted Mushroom Grilled Cheese
Two slices of bread, of your choosing
Roasted shiitake mushrooms
Fresh mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese, grated
Salt and Pepper
Butter or oil, for cooking
If you don't know how to roast your mushrooms- heat your oven to 425 degrees. Toss the mushrooms with a tiny bit of oil, then spread them out on a baking sheet (mine were pre-sliced shiitakes, which worked well), sprinkle them with salt and pepper, and a little thyme would be great here actually, if you're down! Roast for about 10-15 minutes, and keep an eye on them to make sure they don't burn. Remove from the oven and set aside.
Start heating a pan to medium heat with a pat of butter in it. Lay your bread side by side, sprinkle the parmesan cheese on one side (I used about a tablespoon), and slices of fresh mozzarella on the other. Sprinkle the fresh mozzarella with salt and pepper. Layer the mushrooms on top of the parmesan cheese side, and carefully flip the mozzarella side on top. Lightly butter the top of the sandwich. Place the whole thing (un-buttered side down first) in the pan. Let the sandwich cook for a couple minutes, then carefully flip, and let cook for another couple minutes until browned to your liking.
Cut in half and serve with tomato soup. This sandwich is excellent when dipped into the soup!! Enjoy!
