Nutty Swisshroom Sandwich {a Meatless Marvel}

This post has been sponsored by Oroweat® Bread. All opinions are mine alone.

If you know us, you know that we are meat-eaters through and through. Nevertheless, I do like to occasionally eat vegetarian dishes. While Mr Hungry Harp is not too fond of any dish that does not have something that used to have eyeballs, he will still eat these herbivorous meals. However, I always {yes, always} get the infamous question - "Are you trying to kill me?" Then, if he likes the dish the next question is: "This doesn't have meat in it?" And I know the dish is a total hit if I get the final question: "Are you sure this doesn't have meat in it?" This Nutty Swisshroom Sandwich was one of those dishes. The kind that leave my carnivore-of-a-husband telling me that he would totally eat a vegetarian dish again.

I was inspired to make this sandwich by Oroweat®'s America's Better Sandwich contest. One of the four categories is Meatless Marvel and I was immediately convinced I needed to make the most delicious mushroom sandwich ever. Whether or not it is the most delicious will be up to the judges of the contest, but I can for certain tell you that this is a pleaser for even the biggest meat-eater out there.

As soon as I heard that Oroweat® was having a recipe contest, I knew I had to jump into the game. Their bread is amazing. Seriously amazing. I have a few standards of my bread and Oroweat® meets all of them. First, there must be NO High Fructose Corn Syrup - this is the ultimate deal-breaker when it comes to the bread I am going to put into my children's mouths. Second, I need whole grains - not the refined and enriched ones you can find in less expensive bread.  Third, I need variety because I can be a food snob and like to have my choices, lucky for me that Oroweat® has over 20 varieties of sliced bread goodness for any day of the week!

Anyway, back to that America's Better Sandwich contest! There are 4 categories: Fueling Good {breakfast sammies}, Stealthily Simple {maximum of 5 ingredients}, Meatless Marvel {no meat} and Creative Classic {twist on a classic}. Are you hungry yet? I am. :)  The recipe in each sandwich category with the highest score will receive a $5,000 category prize! The grand prize winner will be rewarded $25,000!! I would love to win but I would probably just buy glorious amounts of Fiestaware and Will Ferrell blu-rays - so I encourage you to also enter and maybe do something more mature with your money if you win. ;) 

Ok, so the recipe for this carnivore-pleasin' creation!
