ZAPIEKANKA

Zapiekanka is a polish street food......a baguette topped majorly with mushrooms, meat and cheese.  This recipe was introduced to me by my dearest friend Preeti Mahadik, so thank you Preeti for this lovely introduction.
This that I have made is a little changed version of the original without the meat but still equally mind blowing. So here it is.



ZAPIEKANKA (POLISH)

INGREDIENTS

Onion (chopped finely)
1 cup
Red / yellow and green capsicum (chopped finely)
1 cup
Mushrooms (chopped finely)
1 cup
Garlic (minced)
2 – 3 flakes
Pizza sauce
2 – 3 tbsp
Mix herb
½ tsp
Salt
T.T.
Olive oil
1 tbsp
Baguette / French loaf
1 loaf
Cheese grated
1 cup
Butter
3 – 4 tbsp

 

METHOD:

1.       Warm the olive oil and add in the garlic.

2.       Sauté a little and add in all the veggies. Sauté on high heat for 2 – 3 min.

 
 
3.       The moisture will start to evaporate but still leave the veggies half done.

4.       Add in the pizza sauce, mix herb and salt.

5.       Slice the baguettes to 1 inch thickness.


 
6.       Butter them a little and put the prepared topping on the slices.

 
7.       Sprinkle grated cheese on top and grill in the oven at 180° C for 4 – 5 min till the cheese melts and the bread browns a little at the sides.

8.       If you do not have an oven then place the prepared baguette in a microwave and micro on high for 1 min till the cheese melts.

9.       Transfer it on to a griddle and leave it on a low flame foe 2 – 3 min.

10.   The bottom of the bread will crisp giving the same effect of a crisp exterior and a soft moist centre.  Serve hot.
