Open Face Garden and Orchard Sandwich

  • 1/2 T Butter or margarine
  • 1/3 C Broccoli – small pieces
  • 1 med. Mushroom – sliced
  • 1 T Onion – chopped
  • 2 T Raisins – golden
  • 1 T Walnuts – chopped
  • 1 1/2 T Mayonnaise or Thousand Island dressing
  • 1 slice Bread – whole wheat
  • 1/4 Apple – Red Delicious, unpared, thinly sliced
  • 1 oz. Cheese – pepper jack, thinly sliced


Serves 1 

Melt butter in small skillet. Add broccoli, mushroom, onion, raisins and walnuts. Sauté until vegetables are crisp tender. Stir in mayonnaise or salad dressing. Arrange apple slices on top of bread slice. Top with broccoli mixture, then slices of cheese. Broil sandwich, about 6″ from heat, for about 1 minute until cheese is melted. Note: Sandwich may be served with another slice of bread as a “lid”. It is nice to toast one side of the lid in broiler while cheese is melting.
