a sandwich addiction

Photobucket I think I have found a long lost love. It's ridiculous really; this sandwich is very simple. It just requires finding a few key ingredients, and then arranging them in an enjoyable combination. Generally this combination is completely up to individual preference, and so the sandwich must be enjoyed several times; just to get it right. Oh darn. It's a sort of salty-sweet type of thing. I blame the prosciutto. It is just built that way. It's destined to become an addiction in anything prosciutto decides to be a part of. The fig spread just adds a bit of sweetness, and the goat cheese just makes it that much richer. I'm hooked. Fig spread seems to becoming more and more popular, as I recently have found it at local chain grocery stores. Homemade would surely be over the top, as would attention to different types of fig spread, such as orange fig spread. This sandwich used 100grams of prosciutto, an enormous smear of goat cheese, and a dash of fig spread. An equally mouth-watering crostini can be prepared with the same ingredients, and virtually effortlessly. A similar pizza wouldn't be half bad either. Twist my arm. Prosciutto, Fig, and Goat Cheese Sandwich
  • bread of your choice

I've never used prosciutto as the sole meat on a sandwich because it has such a strong flavor by itself, but with those other ingredients that must be one explosion of flavor!

Yes, normally I don't like it either. This is a first! Especially, if I don't tear it into smaller bits, then it can be impossible to bite into. But this one works.

Oh yummy! I love sandwiches. I could eat sandwiches for lunch everyday. This one looks great.

Yum! Sometimes it's so easy to make a common sandwich turn into a gourmet treat!

Oh yes, I love salty sweet!

I am drooling over this picture. I absolutely LOVE prosciutto. I can (and have) eat a whole pound of it in one sitting. So good on some Italian bread with fresh mozzarella and balsamic vinegar. But this sounds like an equally appetizing take on the sandwich as well.

Ciabatta and prosciutto always get me interested. Your wonderful picture, as usual, makes it for me!

Oh, Gail! This has got to be the best idea ever! There's a little Italian deli here in downtown Boston that makes the best sandwiches with prosciutto, buffalo mozzarella, and basil. They're so very good, but this combination of yours blows that totally out of the water! Yay and yum.

Peppercorn- try it with Mahool dates made into a spread with the cheese; absolutely wonderful!

Soo yummy. wish I had some now! Figs are much better IMHO than melon with prosciutto. DO you have a good banh mi option near you?

They are my new favorite.

I have three things to say to your three ingredients-mind you, I was a former Sandwich Artist-"Yes, yes, and yes.":)
