One of our absolute favorite sandwiches! Since my kids love to eat Italian sandwiches from time to time. I thought we would revive this one from our archives.
This is my son's favorite creation, a fabulous sandwich which he enjoys making at lunch time. He calls it the Dom Sandwich! The Dom Sandwich is made with layers of sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, Italian cured meat called prosciutto di San Daniele, topped with a drizzle of garlic flavored olive oil, and a touch of fresh black pepper all on a French baguette bread. One fantastic sandwich to try!
Prosciutto di San Daniele is an Italian cured meat that is leaner (less fat), sweeter and contains less sodium than the Prosciutto di Parma. It's so tasty, you can absolutely eat it all alone. By the way, this is why we have to buy more than 1/2 pound of this meat at a time.
You can find Italian cured meats in any Italian Pork Store or any Italian Specialty Market. You can also use prosciutto di Parma, or add any Italian cured meat with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and a touch of garlic infused olive oil, and you have one hearty delicious sandwich. Try any variations you prefer. Enjoy!
