    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Halve, peel, and medium dice the onion to get ½ cup (you may have extra). Thinly slice the gouda. Thinly slice the monterey jack. Quarter, core, and thinly slice the pear. Crumble the Grana Padano into small pieces.

    Cook the mushrooms
    2 Cook the mushrooms

    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced mushrooms in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the diced onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Add half the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the liquid has cooked off. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Assemble the sandwiches
    3 Assemble the sandwiches

    Meanwhile, remove the plastic lining between the slices of prosciutto. Assemble the sandwiches using the bread, prosciutto, sliced cheeses, and cooked mushrooms. Rinse and wipe out the pan used to cook the mushrooms.

    4 Cook the sandwiches

    In the same pan, 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; immediately season with salt. Carefully halve on an angle.
