Italian Croque Monsieur (Pan-Grilled Focaccia with Mozzarella and Prosciutto)
The combination of flavors and textures is remarkable -- something like a fruit and cheese and bread course in one manageable package, that Gallic take on grilled cheese, the croque monsieur. We've substituted prosciutto for the usual French ham, mozzarella for the usual Gruyère, and focaccia for the usual white loaf -- and have come up with an even tastier hot snack. Normally, we dislike cooking with prosciutto -- but the prosciutto in the center of this sandwich barely gets cooked, thereby retaining its flavor and texture. Makes 4 sandwiches.
