By naming this sandwich "Grownup Grilled Cheese", I fear that I might be offending the sophisticated palates of the younger generation. I'm sure they would enjoy it just as much as I do.
What's not to like about cutting a piece of focaccia open, layering it with a slice of provolone cheese, piling some thin-sliced prosciutto and baby spinach on it, then topping it off with a drizzle of olive oil?
The cheese melts beautifully and the spinach wilts only slightly. Delicious alone or classically ... with tomato soup.
- Use a variety of cheeses: gruyere, comte, fontina, goat cheese, cheddar.
- Thin-slice dried figs, cook them down in balsamic vinegar, layer on the sandwich and use the vinegar reduction to drizzle on your sandwich. (Mimics THIS pizza.)
- Use bacon instead of prosciutto. Yum.
- Use a pannini press.
