Prosciutto and Melon Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Prosciutto and Melon Grilled Cheese SandwichesI have to admit that this little experiment was a bit of a gamble–when Andrew saw what was in his sandwich he was a bit nervous but after sampling it he agreed that it was an interesting and not-unpleasant combination. Me? I’d upgrade that assessment to “delicious” because I love that savory-sweet combination.

Prosciutto is just a fancy, thin (expensive) Italian ham and while I normally wouldn’t advocate spending a ton of money on super model bacon a little goes a long way and it really gives the sandwiches a delicate texture and flavor.

Anyway, we loved it–and it beats those old American singles grilled cheese sandwiches out the door.

10 ounces sliced prosciutto
half a cantaloupe, thinly sliced
4 slices havarti cheese
8 slices crusty French bread

Divide the prosciutto, melon and cheese among the four sandwiches then brush the outside with melted butter. Grill until golden brown–if the cheese isn’t melted inside yet you can always zap it for about 20 seconds in the microwave.
