Recipe for 2 sandwiches

  • 4 Slices Whole grain bread from the bakery
  • 1 Large tomato ,sliced
  • 4 Slices Prosciutto
  • 5 Large leaves Fresh basil ,chiffonade
  • 4-6 Slices Fresh mozzarella ,sliced about 1/4 inch thick
  • Butter for spreading on bread for cooking

For the honey balsamic reduction

  • 1/2 Cup Balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 Cup Honey


For the Honey Balsamic reduction

  • In a small saucepan bring honey and balsamic to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10-15 minutes. Mix with a rubber spatula occasionally the first 5 minutes and then constantly the last 10. Set aside ( If the reduction begins to cool and thicken too much just heat a bit to loosen it.)

For Sandwich

  • Heat a large fry pan over medium low heat. Butter one side of one slice of bread. Flip over and layer 3 slices of cheese, 2 slices of tomatoes, half of the basil and 2 slices of prosciutta. Top with another slice of bread and butter the top. Repeat to make second sandwich. Carefully place each sandwich in your preheated pan. Place a lid over pan to help the cheese melt. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the bottom of bread is brown. Carefully flip over and brown other side with lid on pan. Once cheese is melted remove from pan and drizzle top with honey balsamic reduction.
