A great sandwich which the DM and I thoroughly enjoyed. I used an aged vintage cheddar cheese and put a heap of pepper on mine but not the DM's as she is not so keen on pepper and with the mushrooms (I used swiss brown) and wholemeal/wholegrain bread and made them in the sandwich press. I served mine with a side salad and we both thoroughly enjoyed, thank you UmmBinat, made for ZAAR Chef Alphabet Soup.

Yum! I made these with a mature English Cheddar, and worcestershire black pepper instead of the stated cheese. I used whole wheat bread and these were very well received by all. I will make them again. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT6.
