The Italian Love Sammich


10 ounces focaccia bread, sliced in half lengthwise (I used roasted garlic and onion flavor)
3 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese
5 ounces very thinly sliced prosciutto
2 roma tomatoes
6 big fresh basil leaves
red wine vinegar
olive oil (the best you can afford)


1. Take the slices of focaccia and toast them slightly in a 375 degree oven; about 5 minutes.
2. While the bread is toasting, slice your tomatoes and mozzerella, you want thin slices.
3. Remove the bread from the oven.
4. Top one side with slices of proscuitto, cheese, tomato and finally basil leaves.
5. Sprinkle a tiny bit of red wine vinegar and olive oil and the other piece of bread, on the side that will be facing towards the toppings; just a little bit, you don't want it soggy.
6. Put both slices together and with your hands (or a brush), rub a bit of olive oil on the outside of each slice.
7. Place on a hot grill for about 2 minutes on each side.
8. I used my George Foreman grill for that step and it worked FABULOUSLY!
9. Remove from the grill, wrap in foil and place in the oven (still at 375) for about 7 minutes.
10. Remove, unwrap, slice in half and enjoy.
11. Suggested sides: a really good pickle spear, olive salad, gourmet chips, a leafy green salad or whatever you enjoy with your favorite sammich.
