The P.A.T - Prosciutto, Arugula & Tomato Sandwich
For a change from the original, try an Italian-inspired variation on the classic BLT sandwich made with crispy prosciutto and peppery arugula.
Servings 1 (adjust for as many sandwichs as needed)
For each sandwich (multiply this depending on the number of sandwiches you are making):
- About 2 oz. 3-4 thin slices prosciutto
- 1 c arugula
- 1/4 c grape tomatoes halved
- 1 T Creamy Balsamic Vinaigrette
- salt & pepper to taste
- 2 slices of your favorite sandwich bread regular or gluten free
Prepare the crispy prosciutto by preheating your oven to 350°F, placing the prosciutto on a cooling rack which is set on top of a baking sheet, and baking for 6-8 minutes per side, or until crispy. Set aside on paper towels to drain. Alternatively, you could cook it in a pan on the stove top over medium low heat until crispy.
Assemble the sandwiches by first tossing together in a bowl the arugula, tomatoes, and Creamy Balsamic Vinaigrette, and seasoning with salt and pepper, if desired.
Lightly toast two slices of your favorite sandwich bread. Top one slice with the arugula mixture, layer on the prosciutto, and top with the second slice of bread.
