About this Recipe

Cheesy Spinach and Corn Sandwich is flavorous, healthy and most importantly very easy to make. This sandwich is inspired by the classic combination of spinach and corn, topped with the goodness of cheese. Kids will love this sandwich and this is a good way to get them to eat spinach. It’s perfect dish for snack/lunch box. The filling can be made in advance and stored in the fridge overnight, which will help reduce early morning stress for mommies. You can try using different types of bread for this sandwich, like here I have shown a white bread version and a multi-grain version.

Ingredients & Quantity
  • Spinach 1 bunch or roughly 1½ cups when chopped
  • Corn kernels ½ cup
  • Processed cheese 3 cubes
  • Pepper powder ½ tsp or to taste
  • Bread 8 slices
  • Onion 1 large
  • Oil 1 tsp
  • Garlic 3-4 cloves
  • Butter 1 tbsp. approximate
  • Sugar 1 pinch (optional)
  • Salt to taste
How to cook?
  1. Wash Spinach leaves in water thoroughly, drain and dry them on a kitchen towel. When the water is almost drained chop them into ½ inch pieces. The chopped pieces should be about 1½ cups roughly.
  2. Finely chop the onions. Peel and chop the garlic into thin slices. Heat oil in a pan, add garlic, and let it sizzle for about 30 seconds. Add the onion, add a pinch of salt. Let it cook till onions are translucent.
  3. Add the spinach, mix well, close lid and cook till spinach is almost cooked. Add some salt and pepper powder, mix well. Add a pinch of sugar to reduce the pungent flavor from spinach. Add the corn, cook for about a minute.
  4. Taste and adjust salt and pepper. The mixture must be slightly bland as the cheese has some salt in it and spinach also tends to get salty soon when the water dries up. Divide the mixture into 4 equal parts.
  5. Grate cheese and divide into 4 equal parts. Apply butter on the bread slices on the outer side, add the filling and grated cheese in between two slices and grill them till crispy in a sandwich maker.
  6. If you don’t have a sandwich maker, apply butter to both the sides of the two bread slices, slightly toast one side of the bread on a tawa and flip it add the filling to the toasted side.
  7. add cheese and cover with another toasted side of bread on the cheese. When the bread slice is toasted on the bottom, carefully flip the whole sandwich and toast the bread slice on top. This way the cheese inside will melt.
Notes
  • You can use any bread for this sandwich and it will taste equally good.
  • Try and use tender spinach leaves for this dish. If the spinach stems are too hard, discard them and use only leaves. The fiber in the stems will make the filling more pungent and stringy to bite.
  • The cheese will make the sandwich better, but you can make it without cheese too.
