  • Spread one side of each bread slice with butter. Place one bread slice, buttered side down, into the skillet. Top with the Swiss cheese, then spread the mushroom mixture on top of the cheese. Cover with the second slice of bread, buttered side up. Cook until the sandwich is golden brown on both sides, turning once. Cut in half and serve hot.

This is a great tasting sandwich! The mushrooms and spinach really only need 1 tsp. of oil to cook in; the bread need only be buttered with 1 tsp. butter. Next time I'll grill the mushrooms and just put in fresh baby spinach. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was a nice and simple sandwich and great for those who love grilled cheese. I added in some garlic salt to the spinach and mushrooms for some extra flavor and I didn't have swiss so I used monterey jack and it still turned out delicious! Read More

These were okay I didn't use spinach since mine was too far gone to use. We all liked it but think some Colby-Jack or provolone cheese would taste better Swiss is very mild for a grilled cheese but the added mushrooms are great. I sauteed mine in butter and garlic. Went great with our Greek Pasta Salad by Danielle on AR. Read More

This was really good. I didn't have swiss so I used mozzarella instead. Next time I will try adding garlic to the mushroom and spinach. Read More

Yum. instead of cooking the mushrooms in oil cook them with hot sauce just make sure the heat isnt to high other wise the sauce will just burn to the pan. it will still stick a little to the pan on medium heat just scrape it off as you go. Read More

Delicious and easy to make. A nice twist on a classic. I used Havarti cheese because I don't really care for Swiss and it was delicious. Thanks! Read More
