From the Test Kitchen

These irresistible sandwiches feature sliced prosciutto (an Italian dry-cured ham), which finds savory complement from our take on pimento cheese—a delightfully melty mix of cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, and piquant peppers.

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. In a large bowl, combine the sliced cabbage and sliced cucumbers. Peel 1 clove of garlic. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Roughly chop the peppers. In a bowl, combine the grated cheese, chopped peppers, mayonnaise, and all but a pinch of the spice blend. Stir to thoroughly combine.

In a bowl, combine the sugar, vinegar, and remaining spice blend. Whisk until the sugar has dissolved. Transfer to the bowl of prepared cabbage and cucumbers; season with salt and pepper.

In a large pan (nonstick,  if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the sandwiches. Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and the cheese is melted (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil before flipping). Transfer to a cutting board. Carefully rub the outer sides of the toasted bread with the peeled garlic clove; discard the clove. Halve the cooked sandwiches on an angle. Serve the finished sandwiches with the slaw on the side. Enjoy!
