Zapiekanka ( Polish Open Faced Sandwich)

hj
Baguette
Onion ( chopped)
Mushrooms (sliced thin) I like baby portabellas
shredded mozzarella cheese
chives( diced fine)
Ketchup
Mayo ( optional)
Deli Ham (optional-sliced thin)

NOTE- there are no exact measurings here- you just want enough ingredients to cover both sides of the baguette

Slice baguette lengthwise
Sautee onions and mushrooms until salt
Season with salt and pepper
Add mayo to the bread(if you want- I do not)
Put onion/mushroom mixture on top of bread
Add mozzarella cheese
Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes until cheese is melty and bubbly
Drizzle with Ketchup
Sprinkle on the Chives
Enjoy!

Ok- so the name, Zapiekanka comes from the word “zapiekac” which means to scorch in Polish. Get it? Its a traditional Polish street food. Its basically a french bread pizza. I know the ketchup seems odd, but it really does taste awesome with everything else. It was said to be invented during the 1970’s when Poland was under Communist rule. It was cheap to make and you could walk around eating and chatting. It was very popular but then died out and is now being revived by the Polish Hipsters ( yeah- they have them too!)

Other Types of Zapiekanka:
Hawaiian style- Add Pineapple and cubed Ham
Greek style- use Feta cheese and add Olives ( Kalamata and black ones)
