This is no ordinary ham and Swiss. This five-ingredient recipe comes together quickly to yield a tasty Italian sandwich.
1 (11-ounce) can refrigerated French bread dough
2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto
1 cup trimmed arugula
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Gruyère cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 425°.
Unroll dough onto a baking sheet; pat into a 14 x 11-inch rectangle. Cut dough into quarters to form 4 (7 x 5 1/2-inch) rectangles. Top each rectangle with 1/2 ounce prosciutto, 1/4 cup arugula, 2 tablespoons cheese, and 1 tablespoon parsley. Beginning at short side of each rectangle, roll up the dough, jelly-roll fashion; pinch seam to seal (do not seal ends of rolls). Arrange rolls 4 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes or until rolls are lightly browned. Serve warm.
I love this recipe! Easy to adapt to what you have on hand. I spread a thin layer of Inglehoffer's sweet hot mustard on the dough before layering ingredients. used the leftover arugula in a side salad. As another reviewer said, they freeze great, and individually wrapped are a quick fix in the toaster oven for lunch!
Used 1# whole grain pizza dough to make 6 rolls. Otherwise followed exactly. Easily beats the usual plain rolls with hearty winter soups. Will try different greens (like escarole, watercress, kale), cheeses,and meats. Very yummy on a cold, blustery day.
Very disappointed with this recipe... the french loaf dough I bought (Pillsbury 11 oz) did not have any way to open it up into a flat sheet as shown in the video, so I cut the log crosswise into 5 sections (the number we needed) and stretched and pushed them down flat like pizza dough - knowing I was probably going to lose all of the rise in the dough. There was not enough dough in each section to make a very big sandwich. They baked up o.k. but were not filling at all and I wound up making scrambled eggs for 2 of us to go with it. The bread dough was kind of tasteless; I know crescent roll dough would be yummy but those are full of salt and fat - so I only buy them about once a year... Not going to try this recipe again - would rather have a regular hot sandwich from my fry pan or panini.
Excellent, but I did cheat. I used Light Laughing Cow Swiss cheese & spinach. Also refrigerated prepared rolls till I could cut in 1/2 to use as appetizers. I also brushed the tops with an egg white wash for a shine. Fantastic & easy! Thanks!
These had great flavor. The bread dough was a little hard to work with. I will definitely make this again. I would also add a little more arugula next time. Once cooked the pepperyness of the arugula is gone.
This is a great recipe that I will make a lot. It's quick and easy, you could change out the ingredients for lots of different things, and makes a great lunch or light dinner. The only thing I would change is to bake on parchment paper, as the bottoms got a little too over-done for my taste.
