Delicious Mushroom Melt Sandwich

Ready : 30 mins [Prep : 5 mins † Cooking : 25 mins] Printable Recipe


What is there not to like about Caramelized Onion Mushroom (aka as Mushroom Melt), right? Now, traditionally…, Mushroom Melt is usually paired with good quality Cheese, Bun or grilled bread and is an absolute delicious creation. Don’t get me wrong, using all the top KwaiLo ingredients is utmost important for a delicious dish BUT being an Asian who does not utilize these ingredients a great deal, it would be too wasteful to shop these and then keep them for too long and ultimately goes to waste. The VianD is kinda stingy on this aspect… *😁*. So, with that in mind – this is a simple “make do” recipe in trying to reproduce the all-delicious grilled sandwich with more readily available ingredients (in an Asian pantry) but obviously, without giving too much away. Here’s The VianD take on “Caramelized Onion, Mushroom, Egg Sandwich“.



  • One medium size Onion – thinly slice.
  • A handful of thinly sliced Mushroom (baby portabella, cremini or button – just to name a few).
  • An Egg.
  • Two slices of Bread (somekind of rustic sandwich bread is a better choice).
  • A piece of sliced Cheese.


  • Salt, freshly ground black Pepper, dried Thyme and Basil. All to taste. ** Note : Just dash/pinch of everything, if U prefer a stronger intensity of an ingredient flavor, simply add a little extra of that ingredient/spice – no rocket scientific measurement here. Always taste your Seasoning !!!


  • Step 1 : Start by melting a small knob of butter (normal cooking oil is fine). Fry the Egg. Here, The Viand has an Egg Ring – just to get a nice round shape (fancy, eh ? *😂*). Dish out and set aside.
  • Step 2 : With the same Pan, add more butter and starts to caramelize the sliced Onion on low/medium heat. When the Onion turns kinda translucent, add in the Mushroom. Continue to gentle saute with constant stirring to avoid burning. After about 20 mins, everything should be nicely caramelized to golden brown and soft (*🤐* here is a little sneaky trick, if U desire a darker color, simply add a drop or two of Dark soy). Add all the Seasoning Ingredients. Set aside.
  • Step 3 : Meanwhile, get the bread toasted and assemble ur Sandwich – starting with the sliced Cheese, Egg, then top with the Mushroom Melt. Viola, ur “Caramelized Onion, Mushroom, Egg Sandwich” is ready !!!
