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.

1 Prepare the ingredients & make the pimento cheese

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!
