Do you build a garden for fresh fruits and vegetables? For the past couple of years we have had one in our backyard with plants ranging from corn, cherry tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, squash, cucumber, peas, bell pepper, jalapenos and okra. This year we got smart and put a shaded cover over the garden to give it a bit more cover from the sun and to protect it from hail storms. We’ve already had a few bad storms and the shade did its job to protect the vegetables. Now I just have to keep the little ones prying fingers from picking and eating all the cherry tomatoes. If we didn’t keep a close eye on them, I swear Shaun and I would never get any.
For lunch lately, I’ve been on an open faced sandwich kick. I’ve mixed it with choices varying from prosciutto slices, salmon or regular lunch meat. For this sandwich, I wanted to take a healthy approach and pair it with fresh heirloom tomatoes, prosciutto, a hearty Italian bread and Sabra’s new Veggie Fusions. It’s a mix of vegetables with avocado to bring a “farm to table” experience into your home. You won’t need the garden outside but in case you have one just put those tomatoes to use with this Guacamole and Prosciutto Toast.
This open-faced sandwich is easy to prepare and everyone will want a slice or two. You can even make this sandwich at work if you have a toaster oven or toaster. The cheese and prosciutto do not have to be cooked but it’s highly recommended.
Put the oven on broil. Place the bread directly on the grates for 1 minute. Flip and then broil for an additional 2 minutes; remove from oven.
Spread the guacamole evenly over all 6 slices of bread. Top with 2-3 slices of heirloom tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Add one slice of prosciutto and then grate some parmesan cheese over the top.
Place back in the oven on broil for 45 seconds.
