Try open-faced broccoli cheddar melt sandwiches when you need a quick lunch or supper

Broccoli Cheddar Melt Sandwiches Recipe

My family enjoys Open-Faced Broccoli Cheddar Melt Sandwiches on those days when we don’t feel like a heavy supper but want something nutritious and… well… kinda fun to eat.

Or… if you have time to make a hot lunch, this nutritious sandwich recipe doesn’t take very long – 20 minutes tops – from washing the broccoli to pulling your sandwiches out from under the broiler.

I make these tasty sandwiches at least once a month, whenever I have a half broccoli or so that hasn’t been allocated to another dish.

Everything else in the recipe is usually in my fridge already. That’s why it’s my “go-to” supper when I don’t feel like cooking a big-production meal. Well, for me, that’s most of the time. You see why I love this recipe so much?

You can pair the sandwiches with soup, sliced tomatoes, or a bowl of fruit. If I’m not feeling too energetic, I might throw a handful of potato chips on the plate.

For a family of light eaters, two sandwich slices might be enough, especially if you heap the broccoli and cheese quite high.

If you love broccoli and cheese together, I think you’ll find this dish very satisfying. It’s a favorite of ours, for sure.
