Vegetarian BBQ Cheese Melts Recipe

Day 96.

So, this was originally a ham & swiss melt recipe. But, my husband doesn't really like Swiss, so I switched that to mozzarella. Then, when it came time to make it, I couldn't find my leftover vegan ham loaf, so I ended up using diced chicken wings. But hey, it's the thought that counts, right?

BBQ Cheese Melts
Adapted from Ham & Swiss.
8 slices light bread
1 package "chikn" wings, diced (I used LightLife's honey BBQ flavor)
4 oz. mozzarella cheese (1 ounce per slice)
cooking spray
1/4 C sour cream
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Heat pan on medium high heat. In a small bowl, combine sour cream, mustard, and garlic powder until well blended. Spread mixture on 4 slices of the light bread, then top with 2 ounces of wings, 1 ounce of  cheese, and another piece of bread. Reduce heat to medium and spray pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place sandwich on pan and heat until bread browns (about 3 minutes). Use spatula to remove sandwich from pan, spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray again and then flip the sandwich to brown other side (about 3 minutes).

The Results
It sounded weird at first, but that sour cream-mustard-garlic spread is fantastic! And it goes super well with the Honey BBQ sauce. Yummmm. I love these sandwiches. Quick and delicious.

What's your favorite melty sandwich?
