This is one of my absolute favourite sandwiches. Absolutely healthy and filling. This recipe is so easy that I have never posted it. I actually don't have any sandwich recipes on my blog! 

But we are amidst a time where nutritious and quick recipes such as these will come in very handy. Schools are still not open and we are still doing online schooling. So amidst all the chaos of juggling many roles we have to work smart and have such nutritious and quick recipes up our sleeve. 

This filling can even be made a day in advance. My kids do throw a tantrum when they see that spinach............ but then we can always bribe them with those french fries!!  It's all about the negotiation y├íll !!:D

Corn and spinach are two ingredients that go hand in hand. With the addition of milk it gives you a very creamy appearance. So let me know if this is a keeper recipe?!:)

This recipe makes about 3 closed sandwiches.
to make the filling-
butter - 1 and 1/2 tbsps
garlic, minced - 1 tbsp
corn - 1/2 cup
spinach, chopped - 200 g (washed and cleaned)
all purpose flour - 1 tbsp
milk - 3/4 cup
salt and pepper to taste
dried italian herbs - 1/2 tsp
chili flakes - as per taste

to assemble the sandwich:
bread slices - 6
cheese singles - 3
butter - to toast

  • To make the filling- Melt some butter in a pan. 
  • Add in the garlic. Saute for a few seconds until nice and fragrant.
  • Add in the corn and saute  for a minute or 2.
  • Next, add in the chopped spinach. Mix well till the spinach has wilted and reduced in quantity.

  • After the spinach has wilted, add in the flour and mix well for about 15 seconds.
  • Then, add in the milk. Let it simmer.
  • Add in the salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add in the chilli flakes and the italian herbs.
  • Once the milk has thickened and the mixture has come together switch off the flame.

  • To assemble the sandwich- In a griddle pan melt some butter and then place 2 slices of bread on it.
  • On top of 1 slice place the cheese slice and on top of the other, spread some corn and spinach filling.

  • Once the cheese has melted, place the cheese bread on top of the spinach filling, cheese side down. Give it a good press. 
  • Once the bread has becomes slightly browned and crisp remove from the pan and cut into 2. Serve with some chilli sauce.
