You say sandwich, I say sammy!
I have always been a huge fan of a delicious sammy. I heart pork products!!! Salami, bacon, pork loin, prosciutto, pancetta....if it comes from a pig I love it with one exception --- HAM. I dislike ham, a lot. I have tried it many times recently and have still decided that I don't like it. But anything else that comes from that little oinker I am a big fan of! I was introduced to one particular sammy by my sister's and her mother in law. I have to say that my sister's mother in law, Sue, makes a mean prosciutto sammy. But then again, doesn't food taste better when anyone else makes it instead of you? :) I love a good grilled cheese sandwich. The gooey cheese is so satisfying and yummy. I am also in love with my grill pan. I will stick anything in it and can make a mean panini by using a heavy pan on top to squish it down. Below is a picture of the prosciutto and mozzarella sammy I made this weekend.
This sammy was made with the following:
2 slices of rosemary french bread
2 slices of shaved prosciutto
1 teaspoon pesto
2 slices of fresh mozzarella
couple slices of tomato
Layers the above ingredients and grill in a little butter or evoo. Like I said above I use my grill pan and place a heavy pan with a can on top to press down. Its ready when the cheese is all gooey and melty all over. Bon Appetite!
