Mushroom, Potato and Pepper Open Sandwich

I love Scandinavia - I'm currently reading Stieg Larson (the second book); have always had a very soft spot for hunky Scandinavian men - they've got a wicked sense of humor and their blue-eyed/blonde hair look, preferably with a golden tan acquired sunbathing (Cough: naked) in Goa, really does it for me. Indian men are like goats - and not in a good way. And the daily recipe emails from My Danish Kitchen had me yearning for magically being in Sweden or Denmark this morning.

If I can't be magically teleported there, at least I can take my first jab at their cuisine. An open sandwich - what's more Danish than that?! Well, the Danish Pastry is, but I ain't got the time or requisite skill to attempt something so complicated. I had a nice loaf of organic multigrain bread from the farmer's market that was unused. And I had a boiled potato (the advantages of living with your family) and chives (I love chives - they seem so buttery). So, made an open sandwich for breakfast. But Indian that I am, I did make it a bit spicy with some green chutney. Good thing I only made one slice, coz the bread was really hearty and filling.

Ingredients:
  • 1 slice bread/baguette
  • 1/2 boiled potato
  • 2-3 white button mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons coconut milk/cream
  • Handul of finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 tablespoon green chutney
  • 1 teaspoon chopped chives
  • 5-8 black pepper corns
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
To make:
  • Mash your potato along with some coconut milk to make a thick gooey paste. Ideally, do this while the potato is still hot.
  • In a pan, heat the olive oil.
  • Chop your mushrooms and add to the pan, along with freshly ground black pepper.
  • Saute the mushrooms for 3-5 minutes until brown.
  • Slice your bread (fairly thick). You may want to toast/grill your bread if its too flimsy.
  • Spread the green chutney over the bread.
  • Next spread the mashed potato over the bread.
  • Layer the sauted mushrooms next.
  • Next come some finely chopped green pepper.
  • Finish off with a sprinkling of finely chopped chives and a dash of olive oil.
