A rich chanterelle mozzarella melt

A rich chanterelle mozzarella melt

Picture a grilled mozzarella melt sandwich. Do you see it? Now add some delicious chanterelle mushroom and piquant dijon mustard to it. Can you taste it? I really love quick and easy food. Who doesn’t right? This is why this recipe is a good one to remember.

We all have those days when we are busy and don’t have time to cook a proper dinner. However, this does not mean that you have to compromise on health and taste. You will have time for this mozzarella melt and the best part. You won’t be disappointed. If you eat meat, then chop up some bacon and add to this fabulous sandwich that is the mozzarella melt. This sandwich is on repeat in our house, especially for lunch. It’s even approved by the kids! Which is saying a lot. They are my biggest critics, and pleasing them isn’t easy. Sometimes I switch the chantarelle for Champignon mushroom instead. The flavour isn’t quite as characteristic as the chanterelle. Which may be easier on the taste buds. Enjoy this quick and easy sandwich!

Brioche hamburger bread to go with your burger

Brioche hamburger bread to go with your burger

I have been on the quest to find the perfect hamburger bread. We love hamburgers in our family and as a result, we eat hamburgers at least once a week. All different kinds of them. This summer, I  have been making a lot of vegetarian versions. The kind even the kids approve of. I will, of course, share the recipes with you. My personal favourite is the grilled halloumi version.

As a consequence of all the burger eating, most of the time I buy hamburger bread in at the grocery store. However, I always find the store bought just not enough. They tend to either be a little dry, or they get too soggy and fall apart.This is where the brioche hamburger bread comes into play! Hence you mustn’t despair, my friends! Continue reading, since I have the perfect hamburger bread recipe for you.

The best part is that they taste equally good just as they are too. Or au naturelle as the French say. That means they can play an important and delicious role at the breakfast table too. I make a double batch and freeze half of them. This way we always have hamburger bread ready. I use sesame seeds on half of them and leave half of them

I try to bake a double batch and freeze half of them, so we always have hamburger bread ready in the freezer. Usually, I sprinkle sesame seeds on half of them and leave the other half plain. For dinner, I just served them with some grilled halloumi and guacamole. Whichever way you like your burger, try this brioche hamburger bread. You won’t be disappointed.

This time, for dinner, I just served them with some grilled halloumi and guacamole. Whichever way you like your burger, try this brioche hamburger bread. You won’t be disappointed.
