Spread a zippy herb mustard sauce on bread slices, pile up a mound of organic vegetables, then blanket the stack with one of Organic Valleyís pre-sliced cheese varieties. Fifteen minutes in the toaster oven and you have a simple, healthful meal thatís endlessly variable and always delicious. For added lean protein, Organic Prairieís deli-sliced meats can be chopped and scattered into the mix. And if itís a special occasion, replace the bread with croissants.
Heat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees. Mix herb mustard spread ingredients in a bowl. For each serving, slather mustard sauce on two slices of bread. Cut one of the slices in half diagonally and lay the two halves atop the outer edges of the second slice, mustard side up, points facing outward.
Place on baking sheet and layer the veggies on the bread. Bake until veggies are heated, 12-15 minutes. Top with cheese slices and bake until cheese is melted and sandwich is hot, another 4-6 minutes. Serve immediately.
