Open-Faced Prosciutto and Plum Sandwiches

    I don't consider myself a "sandwich person," but figured with the combination of fig preserves, ginger, proscuitto and goat cheese, how could you possible go wrong? You can't. This was absolutely divine and I will make it often!

    Wasn't crazy about the fig preserves--but i'm not a fig person. May be better with just a drizzle of reduced balsamic vinegar. But the recipe was really tasty otherwise.

    I would never think of making this again - I'm sorry to say that it was disaster on a plate and defintiely didn't work as a sandwich. We ended up trying to eat it as a salad, which was a lot less messy, but the whole mix of ingredients did not work for me at all. The fig preserves were such a waste as I wouldn't use them again (way to sweet for me) in anything, and the preserve dressing mixed with the goat cheese was an awful combination of flavors in my opinion. I immediately threw out this recipe without even asking how my husband liked / didn't like it - it was never going to go in another weekly meal plan for me.

    I didn't find fig preserves at the grocery store, and I knew that this would be the only recipe I'd use them for, so I decided to skip them. The flavors all worked well together. My only complaint was that 'wedges' were too big, and made the sandwich really messy.

    We loved these! I made them on little baguette slices, and my husband and I both think they would make impressive appetizers, done on a crostini.

    The combination of all these ingredients was spectacular. Instead of toasting the bread, I grilled it with a bit of olive oil on the barbeque. Yummy!

    Very good! I substituted strawberry preserves for the fig, used an herbed goat cheese, thinly sliced the plum instead of cutting wedges, and served open-faced like the picture. I really like the combination of the peppery arugula with the sweet jam and tangy ginger, and the creaminess of the cheese with the richness of the prosciutto balances out the other bright flavors. Quite rich ~ one slice of bread with the toppings was enough for a meal. As another reviewer said, this would be an excellent appetizer on crostini!
