Baby Bella Habanero Sandwiches

Eating sans meat is fine with me but sometimes my hubby wants something....heartier.  So, when I saw the baby bella mushrooms on sale a couple weeks ago, I knew I could make a yummy sandwich that would be meatier than our usual fare.  They did not disappoint!
This sandwich was very easy.  I started by sautéing up an onion in a little olive oil.  Then I added the baby bellas to the mix, along with some kosher salt and pepper.  Once they were done, I shut off the heat and added a little balsamic vinegar to the mix.  I topped a slice of foccacia with the mushrooms, fresh spinach, a teaspoon of Stonewall Kitchen's Habanero Mango Hot Sauce and a slice of provolone.  Then, baked it in the oven at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.  Tasty, meaty and hearty.  It was a nice warm sandwich to eat on a cool March evening.  Of course, my camera's battery died before I could snap the finished product but you get the idea. 
Oh and that hot sauce is super spicy so beware.  But, it's really good!


  1. Yum! I do love spicy :-) I bought some baby bellas last week and sauteed them with onion/garlic/kale and put a good amount of red pepper flakes on it for me :-)

  2. I love this spicy sandwitch! Well done!

  3. mushrooms are one of my favorite things. I love the heat in here too.

  4. Jessica - sounds nice and spicy. Thanks for linking in to Food on Friday.
