I blame it on the bread. Seriously, I have now posted several recipes using this dough. You need to try it.
I’m pretty sure I could put anchovies and sardines (not things I normally consider very appetizing ) on two slices of this bread and it would taste amazing.
Instead, I decided to use ingredients you’ve seen in several recent recipes. Onions? Check. Mozzarella Cheese? Check. Mushrooms? Check again. Yup. These are all ingredients found atop my Mediterranean Pizza. And this bread is the other half of the dough used to make the pizza crust.
That my friends, is two very distinct meals using nearly exactly the same ingredients. One shopping trip. No wasted food. Many happy tummies.
Mozzarella and Caramelized Onion Baguettes
Keywords: bake sandwich vegetarian cheese leafy greens mushrooms
Ingredients (2 sandwiches)
- 2 small baguettes (I made this using half of this dough and shaping into small baguettes)
- 3 tbs. olive oil
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 4 button mushrooms, slices
- Large handful spinach
- 6 basil leaves
- 3-4 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded or sliced
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat 2 tbs. olive oil in saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook about 8-10 minutes, until browned. Set aside.
2. Slice baguettes open down center. Drizzle remaining olive oil over insides of bread. Fill each sandwich evenly with caramelized onion, mushroom, spinach, basil and mozzarella cheese. Wrap entire sandwich in foil and bake about 8 minutes, until warmed through. Serve and enjoy!
