Baked Cana de Cabra goat cheese sandwich w/ truffle mushrooms

This baked goat cheese sandwich with truffle mushrooms is what lunch dreams are made of!

The Deets

This is a Cana de Cabra goat cheese baked into ciabatta bread, and then topped with buttery truffle mushrooms, arugula and balsamic glaze. This is my second recipe I’ve done baking the cheese into the bread and It really takes the sandwich to the next level.  I make a little hole directly in the bread and place the Cana de Cabra cheese directly in there. I used a Vermont Creamery cheese like this one for this dish, but any soft goat cheese will work and be yummy. You’ll toast up your bread until the cheese gets all melty. This hack is life changing and I will definitely keep testing out more recipes with this method. You’ll then cook up some shiitake mushrooms with butter and thyme. Add it to the bread and layer with some arugula, balsamic, truffle mushrooms, and voila! This sandwich is seriously out of this world, especially with the hint of truffle. For all the truffle lovers out there this one is for you. For all my other sandwich ideas, be sure to check out the full collection here! There’s something for everyone.

You could sub with another goat cheese if you can’t find Cana de Cabra. I get it at the cheese section of Whole Foods Market.
