Zekey makes you a sammich
Hey all you wonderful people! Do you want to learn how to cook but can't follow a recipe and hate cooking shows? Well I got you covered, cause I'm about to show you how to make a kickass prosciutto sammich, WITH PICTURES!
what you'll need:
-prosciutto- you'll only need a 1/4 lb for this. A little goes a long way, which is good, because prosciutto is freakin' expensive!
- fresh basil- try to get sweet basil if possible
- bread- you should try to get as dense a bread as you can; the fewer holes the better!
- extra virgin olive oil
- balsamic vinegar
Also, if you have a panini press it will come in handy but if not, you can also do it on the stove with a pan.
Ok, now to cook your delicious sandwich.
First cut up your dates and slice your cheese and bread. Then wisk the oil and vinegar together the best you can. My set up looks like this:
Then you spread the oil/vinegar mix on the outsides of two pieces of bread, like so:
The bread I used was a bit small, but I made it work.
Next put down a layer of prosciutto.You don't need a lot of prosciutto, otherwise the sandwich gets too salty! By putting the prosciutto first, it blocks the cheese going through any holes you might have:
Then put down a layer of cheese. I tend to get heavy-handed with the cheese, because I'm in love with cheese. Don't you dare judge me! My bond with cheese is something special!
After the cheese, you'll want to add the basil. This again stops the cheese from getting away:
Ok the best part! Add the sliced dates. The dates adds sweetness, which with the saltiness of the prosciutto is delicious!
Top it off with the other slice of bread like so:
Make a bunch and then cook them on the panini press or on the stove until the cheese melts and the outside browns a bit:
Plate 'em up and pig out!
