Asparagus and cheese go beautifully together, and in this recipe I pair asparagus with cheddar for an open-faced sandwich.
The nice thing about open-faced sandwiches is that if you’re using fresh, flavorful ingredients—in this case, asparagus and shiitake mushrooms—their flavors won’t be crowded out or buried by all the bread. Yet you can still have the easy, quick convenience of a sandwich. It’s also easier on the carb intake. But it still satisfies your hunger.
Give it a try when you want a quick but delicious meal. Enjoy!
