10. Take the bread slices. Slice the edges if you want. You can use whole wheat bread, multi grain bread, brown bread or white bread. Spread the mushroom filling on the bread slices.

You can add some grated cheese on top of the mushroom filling, if you like. Also if you prefer, you can brush the bread slices with a bit if olive oil or spread some butter.

While in the recipe I have made grilled sandwiches, you can opt to make open faced sandwiches by topping the mushroom stuffing on a toasted bread.

Zapiekanka

Meet Zapiekanka, the Polish open-face variation of the humble Mushroom Sandwich. The origin of this word is ‘zapiekac,’ meaning baking a dish to combine its ingredients, resulting in a crisp and brown crust on top.’

Known by another moniker Polish Pizza, this sandwich has sautéed mushrooms, cheese, etc. on baguette or French bread slices. Usually served with tomato ketchup and is a popular Polish street food since 1970.

The various types of cheese that may be used in its preparation range from the very Polish ‘oscypek’ (smoked sheep milk cheese) to Cheddar, Gouda, Emmental, Edam and Tilsit.

Zapiekanka has some varieties too. For instance, Diablo (pickled cucumbers, spicy sauces), Greek (feta cheese, olives), Hawaiian (pineapple, barbecue sauce), Gypsy (sweet and sour sauce) and also a variant called ‘student’s zapiekanka.’
