Part of the party, petite prosciutto and cheese sandwiches, were very good served with the eggplant sandwiches, Prosecco, and Cava. —ibbeachnana

What You'll Need
  • 6 pieces thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 12 1/2 inch baguette slices
  • small fresh basil leaves, enough for each sandwich
  • baby arugula leaves for each sandwich
  • Select Pepato, Fontinella, Montasio, or Provolone cheese slices, I prefer cheese shaved with a vegetable peeler
  • EVOO, cracked pepper, and oil cured olives for garnish

  • optional ground red pepper flakes to sprinkle

  • halved tomatoes to rub over bread
  1. Everything can be prepared ahead of time, packaged for travel in a cooler. Ready for each guest to prepare their own sandwiches the ingredients are all pre-sliced easy to handle and they can season with oil and pepper when assembled. Each person squishes a tomato over and rubs the juices over the bread slices, add a slice of cheese, piece of prosciutto, more cheese, a basil leaf, drizzle of oil and a touch of pepper, top with another tomato bread… Serve with assorted olives and a good wine.
