Spanish Comfort Sandwich by Jesse Bluma

Spanish Comfort Sandwich

Layers of flavors and textures give this sandwich desirable appeal.  The crisp Granny Smith apple slices atop melted Swiss cheese, tender hearts of palm, and spicy “meat” makes for a hearty meal.  Enjoy and get creative with your own variations.  

*Update:  I got this message from Eureka Organic Bread--"Looks delicious Jesse! Thanks for sharing! We love seeing these amazing creations!"...from El Burrito Mexican Food Products (the makers of Soyrizo)--"Looks delicious...enjoy!"...and from Sargento Cheese:  "What a delicious and creative sandwich idea Jesse! Thanks so much for sharing with all of us!"

Cooking spray (I use Smart Balance.)
2 slices organic SAAA-WHEAT bead (by Eureka! Baking Company )
2 ounces reduced fat Swiss cheese (by Sargento) 
1/4 cup Soyrizo (meatless chorizo)

5 thin slices organic Granny Smith apple

2 organic hearts of palm, sliced lengthwise 

1.  Remove cheese from the refrigerator 1 hour prior to use.
2.  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius).
3.  While the oven is pre-heating prepare Soyrizo according to package directions (cooking approximately 10 minutes in a pan on the stove).
4.  Slice heats of palm into lengthwise, 4 even slices of each--for a total of 8 slices.
5.  Coat a grill with cooking spray.  
6.  Pre-heat grill, remove bread slices from packaging, then place on grill until golden
brown and there are grill marks on the bread slices.  (Ensure both sides of each bread slice get golden brown.)
7.  Place cheese slices on one of the slices of bread.
8.  Place cheese covered bread slice on a parchment lined sheet pan.
9.  Place in oven until cheese is melted, 2 to 4 minutes.
10.  While cheese is melting in the oven, wash, dry, and slice apple.
11.  Use an oven mitt to remove from the oven, top with Soyrizo, apple, and hearts of palm, then serve immediately.
