Prosciutto, Swiss, and Apple Grilled Cheese

With a recipe idea from a  friend of Buzz Savories in Lincoln,  Nebraska, we transformed the always popular grilled cheese into a crunchy sandwich with layers of flavor, color and spice.

Invite family and friends for Breakfast, or Brunch, or certainly Lunch to share this Buzz Savories  twist on the traditional grilled cheese sandwich.

Breakfast – a grilled sandwich tasting sweet and salty with crunch and chew.

Brunch – spotlight on the Prosciutto, Swiss and Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwich – simple ingredients and easy to assemble and grill.

Lunch -Serve with chips and your family’s favorite pickle.

The chill descends in October, and a serious freeze is predicted tonight.

I’m  grilling a Prosciutto, Swiss and Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwich with a Buzz Savories Honey Mustard Dressing.  I will serve it  hot and accompanied by fruit on a skewer and a bowl of chili or wild rice soup or Campbell’s Chicken Noodle.

In the basement of my mother’s house in Holdrege,  I discovered this ancient grill, probably circa. 1950-(a time in history when G.E. made appliances).  And in perfect working order.

Before this griddle reappeared in my life,  I grilled  in a sturdy  stainless steel skillet or a panini grill.  Press the sandwich as it grills with a spatula.

Arugula grows like a wild thing in my backyard garden. Note: Peppery flavor and lots of crunch-  I’m learning to prefer Arugula’s spice in a sandwich and a salad.

Equipment

What You'll Need:

  • 1 Tb. Spicy Beer Mustard Mustard or Buzz Savories Honey Mustard (if using the honey mustard, skip the additional honey in the recipe)

  • 4 oz. Thin slices of Prosciutto or shaved ham Recipe detail:  : Select shaved ham if prosciutto is unavailable. 
  • 1 cup Fresh arugula lettuce or spinach You may prefer spinach to the arugula.  Arugula has a peppery flavor that I think compliments the flavor profile although spinach will work as well.

  • ¼ cup butter, softened

How To Prepare:

  • In a small bowl stir together Buzz Savories Spicy Beer Mustard and honey or measure and stir 2 Tb. Buzz Savories Honey Mustard.
