Spinach Corn Sandwich

Spinach Corn Sandwiches are delicious and healthy sandwiches made by stuffing seasoned spinach, corn kernels and mozzarella cheese between bread slices. These sandwiches are filled with the goodness of spinach and sweet corn. I have used brown bread in making these sandwiches. You can use white bread or multigrain bread also.

Spinach Corn sandwiches are one of my favourite options in breakfast as they are really filling along with being healthy. In this spinach corn sandwich recipe I have used mozzarella cheese in the stuffing but sometimes when I am out of stock for it, I even use a little mayonnaise or even low fat yoghurt. The cheese/yoghurt/mayonnaise are required with spinach and corn for adding some moisture in sandwiches. Some people even use white sauce in filling i.e. mix the cooked and seasoned spinach-corn with white sauce and cheese.

The recipe shared here is simple and quick to make. You can prepare the spinach corn stuffing in advance and at the time of serving just grate some cheese then use it in sandwiches. For instance if you are planning to make it breakfast or giving it in kids tiffin, then prepare the spinach-corn stuffing a night before. In the morning just add some cheese/mayonnaise in that stuffing and prepare your sandwiches. It will take 5-7 minutes to grill the sandwiches and Voila!! Your breakfast would be ready.

In this recipe, it has been tried to bring the punch and smokiness of paneer tikka in our modern day sandwiches. The recipe however is not cumbersome and requires just few ingredients. I have also shared few other sandwiches on this blog-Paneer Tikka Sandwich, Hung Curd Sandwich, Pinwheel Sandwich and Coleslaw Sandwich. These sandwich recipes are prefect for breakfast or kids' tiffin

Hope you would like and enjoy this recipe.

List of Ingredients: (Makes 3 sandwiches)

  • Bread Slices-6
  • Butter- 4 tbsp
  • Chopped Garlic cloves- 4
  • Chopped Spinach-2 & 1/2 cups
  • Sweet corn kernels-1 cup
  • Grated Mozzarella - 3/4 cup
  • Salt- To taste
  • Black Pepper-1/2 tsp
  • Red Chilli Flakes-1/2 tsp
  • Dried Organo-1/4 tsp

Steps To Prepare:

Heat 2 tbsp butter in a non-stick pan. Add chopped garlic to it. Stir for 15-20 seconds.
Add chopped spinach leaves and salt to it. Mix well.
When the leaves start to soften add sweet corn kernels and cover with a lid for 5-7 min. The moisture released by the spinach leaves will help in cooking of the kernels.
After 5-7 minutes, if there is still some moisture present cook it with lid open till most of the moisture is evaporated.Switch off the flame. Add all the seasoning and mix well.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add grated cheese to it. Mix well.
Take two bread slices. Liberally spread the stuffing on one of the slices. Place the second slice above it and apply some butter on the top.
Preheat the sandwich maker (buy here). Before placing the sandwich, apply some butter or olive oil on the lower plate of sandwich maker. Grill the sandwich for 4-5 minutes or till you get the desired browning!!
Enjoy the spinach corn sandwich with ketchup and hot steaming cup of coffee.
