Chef Chuck's Italian Grilled Ham and Cheese

Formaggio alla Griglia e Prosciutto
A toasty warm sandwich composed of creamy mozzarella, ham off the bone, and a juicy ripe tomato drizzled with olive oil.  I spread butter and red hot pepper flakes on Artisan Italian bread to give this sandwich a little spice.

  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your new site design! Yaaay! Oh, and I love your Italian Grilled Ham and Cheese. We just had our family Thanksgiving yesterday and guess what I have leftover? Ham on the bone! Woohoo - I know what's for dinner tonight.

  2. Hi Jodi Nina!
    I LOVE that you LOVE my new site!!
    Yes, you found a good place to use that great ham...
    Take Care ;)

  3. I can't help thinking that mortadella should be in there, somewhere?
    I hate to say that growing up my Mom would make us fried Balogna sandwiches and they were soooo good (and so bad we have found out). This looks like a much better version.

  4. Hello Susan,
    Love that mortadella,
    I also remember those great sandwiches!
    You will certainly like this one... Thank you :)
