I love a quick dinner that is easy to prepare and tastes delicious. Thats why I made a classic grilled cheese into an equally as quick but fancier version! Prosciutto, arugula, dijon mustard and balsamic vinegar turn up the volume on a basic cheddar cheese melt.
Cheesy, melty, salty, crunchy, filling and delicious!
The star of this melt is the prosciutto. If you have never bought or eaten this unique and yummy cured meat be sure to have the deli shave you a few slices on your next shopping trip. It is a great stand in for any lunch meat, it goes great on a pizza, you can eat it plain or serve it on a antipasto platter.
I took two slices, placed them on piece of parchment paper and broiled them for about 3 minutes until it was just crispy.
On any kind of bread spread dijon mustard on one slice, add cheese of choice, prosciutto, fresh arugula and top with balsamic vinegar
Put the top on and butter both sides of the bread so it gets really crispy
In a panini press, panini pan or a skillet (like I have here) toast the sandwich as you would a grilled cheese but top it with something heavy to get the pressed sandwich feeling!
I am kind of arugula obsessed so feel free to add as much or as little as you would like!
Serve sandwich with soup, salad or by itself!!
