Portabello Melt on 7-Stars Wheat Bread

In a rush? This sandwich is quick and delicious, with the refreshing fragrance of whole wheat bread, umami from the mushrooms, warm nuttiness from the cheese and broccoli, and a kick from the pepper.

Portabello Melt on 7-Stars Wheat Bread
1 slice 7-Stars wheat bread
a dab of dijon mustard (if desired)
five slices of portabello mushroom cap
1 slice white cheddar or swiss cheese
salt and pepper
broccoli florets, steamed in microwave

1. Spread bread with mustard, if desired. Add slices of portabello.
2. Fold cheese in half and place on top of everything. Microwave on a small plate for 45 seconds, or until cheese is melted.
3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and add broccoli on top.

Open Faced Tuna Melt on 7 Stars

I love sandwiches. They often seem like a warm-weather kind of food (think picnic on the Main Green when its 70 degrees out), but they can be just as yummy in the snowy cold - especially when they feature warm, melted cheese.

Open Faced Tuna Melt on 7 Stars
1 slice whole grain 7 Stars bread
Mediterranean tuna salad
1 slice of Swiss cheese
1 tsp olive oil or 1 tsp mustard

Spread the bread slice with olive oil or mustard, top with tuna salad and cheese, folded in half. Microwave on high for 1 min, or until cheese has melted. Enjoy!
