I’m not really one for sandwiches unless they are homemade and I have packed them full of flavourful ingredients. Toasted sandwiches are my favourite. I love when the cheese slowly oozes out and forms strings of cheesy deliciousness as you bite into to the sandwich and pull away. Toasted sandwiches are really popular and one of my favourites has smoked salmon, mature cheddar and horseradish sauce. Not only is it full of flavour but, as I use seeded wholemeal bread you get the added goodness of the nutrients from the seeds as well as the fibre from the bread. The salmon is high in protein and vitamins B and D. Salmon also contains omega 3 fatty acids so has been linked to reducing the risk of heart disease and Alzheimer’s.
There are days that I am rushed off my feet but of course need to eat a healthy and tasty lunch but don’t have much time to prepare one. It’s great to know that in the matter of a few minutes I can have a tasty meal ready to eat. Here is my quick and simple recipe for my
Horseradish, Cheddar and Smoked Salmon Toasted Sandwich
2 Slices of Wholemeal bread (I used frozen)
2 slices of mature cheddar approx 50g in total
3 slices of smoked salmon
2.5-3 tsp horseradish sauce
A handful of salad leaves as a garnish
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. (Fan oven, 210 degrees for a conventional oven)
Toast the bread at the lowest heat if you are using frozen bread. If you are using fresh bread skip the toasting part.
Slice the cheese and place this in the centre of the bread.
Fold the salmon slices and place on the bread making sure the whole slice is covered evenly.
Spoon the horseradish sauce onto the slice of bread, spread it evenly and place that slice of the bread sauce down onto the salmon.
Cut the sandwich diagonally and place it onto a foiled baking tray with a space between them to allow the hot air to circulate and the cheese to melt faster.
Cook for approximately 5 minutes or until the cheese starts melting and then remove from the oven and serve.
