Prosciutto and Provolone Panini

Pin It
This Italian ham and cheese sandwich is easy to build with the main ingredients purchased from Whole Foods.  The addition of roasted garlic grape seed oil on the inside of the baguette makes it even more delicious.  The prosciutto is tender and silky.  The provolone cheese is warm and soft.  And the fresh basil gives it Italian flavor.  It's simple, rustic, but so delicious!
The Fiorucci pre-sliced prosciutto is by far my favorite packaged prosciutto.  Whole Foods also has the best baguettes in West Little Rock!  We are very particular about the crisp, outer texture and soft inner texture of our baguettes.

Ingredients:
  • French baguette bread
  • Provolone cheese
  • Roasted garlic grape seed oil spray
  • Fiorucci prosciutto
  • Fresh basil leaves
Directions:
  1. Slice the baguette the length that you would like your sandwich.  I usually slice it about the length of a slice of prosciutto.  Then slice it in half lengthwise.
  2. Spray the bread with the grape seed oil spray.  If you don't have this, you can also rub the bread with a garlic clove and then brush the bread with some olive oil.
  3. Fold the provolone cheese in half to split it apart, then lay it on a slice of bread.
  4. Turn on the broiler, and when it's ready, broil the baaguette slices until the cheese is melted.
  5. Place several slices of prosciutto on top of the cheese, then top with basil.
  6. After assembling, you can dip the panini into bread dipper before taking each bite.
Jereme loved dipping his panini in a Mediterranean bread dipping oil with sundried tomatoes and garlic.
