But 3 oz of Manchego? LoL. Yeah....right.... we used our panini press and these came out great. Used a combo of cremini and shiitake mushrooms.
Excellent sandwich. Made to directions, prepping the mushrooms in the morning. If, like me, you buy whole mushrooms rather than pre-sliced allow more skillet-time for the liquid to evaporate. Served with a spicy tomato soup (Gourmet Magazine Dec 2004) & slaw.
Very good recipe. we loved it for a simple weeknight meal. I used only baby bellas because the mix is too expensive. Unlike other reviewers, I thought that it wasn't enough mushroom, so used more mushroom on each sandwich than it called for: about 2/3s of the mushrooms just for the two of us, but kept the cheese amounts what they were supposed to be. I served it with a salad and it was a great meal.
Delicious, perfect recipe!
My husband has started to enjoy cooking, now that we are in a dinner club. He found this recipe and made it now twice and it is simply delicious! We used sourdough bread (which I frozen from a previous purchase), cremini mushrooms and Manchego from Costco, It is pretty simple once the prep work is done. Served with broiled asparagus or a nice salad and you have a complete meal! We will definitely be making this recipe again (my husband will anyways!)
Great recipe! Was really looking forward to this as Manchengo is a delicious cheese. Could have used more cheese, but it melted wonderfully!. Very easy recipe. We will make it again.
My husband loved this sandwich, saying it was the best ever and better than any panini that he'd had at panera's. I did a few substitutions: dried thyme, 16 oz baby Bella since we had nothing more exotic, red wine vinegar, and ciabatta instead of sourdough. I also spread it across the entire loaf, making about double the servings with only upping the cheese. I can't imagine that many mushrooms just for four servings.
