Parchment Paper
Baking Sheet
Measuring Spoons
Large Non-Stick Pan
Small Bowl


Roast potato wedges
  • Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch wedges. 
  • Melt garlic spread in a small microwavable bowl or a small pan over low heat.
  • Add potatoes to a parchment-lined baking sheet. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, use 2 baking sheets.) Drizzle with half the melted garlic spread, then toss to coat. 
  • Roast in the middle of the oven, flipping halfway through, until tender and golden-brown, 25-28 min. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, roast in the middle and bottom of the oven, rotating sheets halfway through.)
Prep and cook mushrooms
  • Meanwhile, thinly slice mushrooms.
  • Thinly slice chives.
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • When the pan is hot, add remaining garlic spread, then mushrooms. Cook, stirring often, until softened, 5-6 min. Season with pepper.
  • Remove the pan from heat. Transfer to a plate, then cover to keep warm.


Finish prep
  • Peel, then cut onion into 1/4-inch pieces.
  • Add mayo and half the chives to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.
Make balsamic onions
  • Reheat the same pan (from step 2) over medium. When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil, then onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 2-3 min. 
  • Add balsamic glaze, mustard, 2 tbsp (4 tbsp) water and 2 tsp (4 tsp) sugar. 
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until some liquid has evaporated and onions are jammy, 3-4 min. (TIP: Use a fork to help break down onions!) Season with salt and pepper.


Toast rolls
  • Meanwhile, halve ciabatta rolls. Arrange on another parchment-lined baking sheet, cut-side up.
  • Toast in the top of the oven until golden-brown, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on them so they don't burn!)
Finish and serve
  • Spread balsamic onions over rolls. Top with mushrooms and cheese. Return to the top of oven and bake until cheese melts, 5-6 min. 
  • Divide open-faced mushroom melts and potato wedges between plates. 
  • Sprinkle with crispy shallots and remaining chives.
  • Serve chive mayo alongside for dipping. 

If you've opted to add chicken breasts, pat dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Reheat the same pan over medium-high.  When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil), then chicken. (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the pan; cook chicken in 2 batches if needed.) Cook until golden, 1-2 min per side. Transfer chicken to a parchment baking sheet. Use the same pan to cook onions in step 4. Roast in the middle of the oven until chicken is cooked through, 12-14 min.*


Thinly slice chicken. Arrange chicken on top of plated sandwiches.
