Sloppy 'Shroom Sammies

I'm moving everything from the cooking closet [my other blog that has been inactive for over a year] over here to MN365. I'm decluttering. Hope it's not too annoying! (-:


I was never a fan of sloppy-joes. Was it the name? The ground beef? The mess?

I don't know.

They were never my favorite. This version of some vegetarian sloppy 'shroom sandwich is pretty tasty if I do say so myself. (-:

Do you purchase things that are "Manager's Special"? I shop on specific days [Sunday and Monday usually] to take advantage of these babies. Typically my Kroger marks their food on special if it's about to expire in the next day or two. I love you clearance items.
I diced my portabellos and sautéed them in some olive oil and added a sprinkle of Slap Ya Mama and some balsamic vinegar. Just cook it down until the balsamic reduces a bit.
If you live closer than two hours away from Trader Joe's I'm jealous. Also, you should stop by and pick up some of this mustard. It's delicious.
Then build your sammies. I start with a toasted bun, I like it crispy to add some more texture, next the 'shrooms, some spinach, and mustard and mayo.

Eat. Enjoy.
