Prep Time
20 Mins
4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)

Update the traditional BLT sandwich with this scrumptious stacker. The grocery deli will slice prosciutto in very thin pieces, making three ounces of the good stuff more than enough for four sandwiches. For a zesty and pretty garnish, attach 1 small sweet gherkin pickle to the top of each sandwich with a toothpick. A toss-together fruit salad makes a speedy side.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Arrange bread slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Broil bread 2 minutes on each side or until toasted.

Step 3

Combine mayonnaise, basil, mustard, and garlic; spread mayonnaise mixture evenly over 4 bread slices. Layer 1/4 cup lettuce and 2 tomato slices over each serving; top evenly with prosciutto and remaining bread.

Step 4

Fruit salad: Combine 1 teaspoon fresh lime rind, 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, 1 tablespoon honey, and a dash of salt; drizzle over 4 cups mixed precut fruit.

I really thought the mayo mixture was what made this sandwich.

Very good! One change....I brushed the bread with a bit of olive oil and toasted it in a pan, then assembled. Made a big difference!

This is one fantastic sandwich and I am not a big sandwich person. The sauce is a must. Used a rustic wheat baguette that was nice and crusty and placed the soft side of the bread down on the broiler to make it nice and soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside. The sauce is a must. We ate it with sliced avacados. This is one I would serve for luncheon guests along with a nice soup.

I have a question...Do you cook the prosciutto first or just put it on as is? Sounds like a great alternative to the BLT.

I would consider this a good lunch sandwich, but certaintly not worthy of a special occassion. Yes, the mayo mixture was good, but if I make this again, I would probably use a panini press and grill the entire sandwich.

Good and easy to prepare. The family liked this one. Served with baked fries. Perfect for a busy weeknight meal.

I really enjoyed this was a delightful change from the traditional BLt!! I was only making one, I did make some changes. Instead of grilling this in my big oven, I toasted the bread. I spread Dijon mustard on one side and mayo on the other...I sprinkled with some garlic powder....topped it with 2 slices of prosciutto, tomato and lettuce. Even if I was serving 4 people, 6 T of anything seems an awful alot of sauce and I am not sure about the raw garlic. Alot of people have a hard time digesting raw garlic. Overall, I would do this one again!

Please, no more of the drama queen video. Just the recipe is enough. No one ever answered the question if the prosciutto needs to be cooked. I am assuming not, since the drama queen didn't show it in the video.
