Tomato, Prosciutto Gruyere Open Faced Sandwiches


I thought I would end my tomato series with something ridiculously delicious. A broiled open faced sandwich topped with melted gruyere. Whats inside? Tomato, prosciutto, garlic and a drizzle of wine. Basically portable fondue. Chef Daniel Homm created this yummy concoction, its been in the top 9 in my house all summer.


  • 4 slices of white bread
  • 2 Tb olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove sliced in half
  • 1 ts white wine
  • 2 slices prosciutto
  • 1 beef steak tomato sliced
  • Kosher salt
  • pepper
  • sweet paprika
  • 1/2 pound Gruyere thinly sliced

Heat oven to 400. Brush bread on both sides with olive oil. Place on baking sheet, toast for a few minutes turning once till lightly golden, but soft inside. Rub toast on 1 side with garlic. Drizzle white wine over garlic rubbed toast. Top with prosciutto, tomato, salt and sliced gruyere. Broil for about 3 minutes till bubbly. Sprinkle with paprika and ground pepper. This takes a toasted cheese sandwich to a whole new level.
