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!


  1. That looks delish. Is that a plum on the side? That looks good too...Hmm. I must be hungry!

  2. That sure is a plum. It was yummy too! I don't think they are technically in season right now, but it was still sweet and juicy :)

  3. Yes, this sammy is delish, and it does taste better when Sue makes it. I think most people, even non-cooks like me, can handle it, though. :) I feel so lucky to have been mentioned in your post!

  4. P.S. I dunno why it comes up as RB Photography. I made a blog but have nothing on it (yet!) A website is in the works, too. FYI... :) Love you!

  5. yum!! I got to enjoy this sammy compliments of karin...thanks!! it was delish!

  6. This looks amazing, Karin! Love the plum on the side. :)
