Corn Spinach Open Sandwich

Blogging Marathon # 35 Week 1 Day 3
Theme : Cooking with Corn

For the final post under the theme of Cooking with Corn i was wondering what to post, and as they say you will make it if you are determined, i had to go for a meeting and usually I carry something like rolls, sandwich as in Nigeria we don't get good vegetarian food, and the hold ups are such at times I have been in the hold up for 3 hrs and nothing moves, during these time my carry take helps me a lot and came up to make Corn Spinach open sandwich, as it is very quick and easy, i always have some frozen spinach as it is very handy and also a can of corn kernels and baby corn in pantry do here is quick version of my take on sandwich.

Preparation : 10 mins
Cooking time : 15 mins
Serves : 2
Difficulty level : very easy
Course : Breakfast, Lunch Box

Ingredients :
4 slice of bread
2 slice of mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup corn kernels
1/2 cup blanched and chopped spinach
1/4 cup cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 tsp thyme dried
1/4 tsp dry rosemary
1 tbsp pepper
salt to taste
1 tbsp butter

Method : 

  • Heat butter in a pan, add in herbs, chopped onion and saute for 2 mins or translucent.
  • Add in blanched and chopped spinach,corn, salt and pepper, saute for a min.
  • Remove in plate and let it cool for a while. Add in grated cheese and mix well
  • Take a slice of bread spread the mix.
  • Cut the cheese into 1/2 " strips or cut into 8 strips.
  • Make a criss cross and bake in preheat oven for 10 mins or till crisp and golden brown from bottom.
  • Wrap in grease proof paper and pack or serve hot with sauce of your choice

  • You can use corn of your choice, make sure you pre-cook the corn if using fresh.
  • Can also add paneer or tofu instead of cheese to make a healthy version.
  • I have used frozen spinach as i keep it handy.
  • Use of herb is your choice, curry masala or any other spice can be added if using paneer
