Spinach - Cheese Sandwich

Event: Blogging Marathon #42
Theme: Easy Tiffins 

This spinach - cheese sandwich is a light yet filling snack for evenings or a quick breakfast / lunch box option.

Ingredients: (3 servings)
6 brown bread slices
1 to 2 tbsp butter
1 cup or about 5 oz frozen spinach or a little more quantity if using fresh spinach
A handful of corn (I used frozen one.)
A pinch of salt (optional since the cheese slices contain salt.)
Crushed black pepper to taste
6 cheese slices

Method:
* Thaw the frozen spinach in the microwave. Heat butter in a pan and add spinach and corn. Saute until the spinach is cooked and add pepper and salt if using. Fry for few seconds and turn off the stove.
* Place 3 bread slices on a baking sheet. Place one cheese slice on each of them. Spoon the cooked spinach mixture equally among the three bread slices such that the mixture is equally spread on the cheese slices. Cover each of them again with a cheese slice and a slice of bread. 
Finally the arrangement should be in this order - A bread slice, cheese, spinach mixture, cheese and another bread slice. Or you can use both cheese slices on the bottom bread slice itself. 
* Turn on the oven at 180 deg C / 350 deg F. There is no need to wait until the oven preheats. Place the baking sheet in the oven. There is no need to preheat the oven. Bake until the cheese melts and turn off the oven.
* Serve warm.

Note:
* I used cheddar cheese slices. However you can add white cheese as well and add directly to the spinach mixture while cooking. Just spoon the mixture between two bread slices and toast.
* I used the convection oven but a toaster oven / toaster can be used or the bread can be directly toasted on a griddle.

Toasting the sandwiches is a nice idea if making in large quantities.
