how about a dinner menu suggestion?

I got this idea from The Evening Tribune from Hornell, and it sounded intriguing to me, especially in light of a pending spring storm coming overnight for the Finger Lakes Region.

Dinner idea: Warm Fig and Prosciutto Sandwiches
  • 6 thick slices country bread
  • 2 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 6 tablespoons fig jam
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 12 thin slices Prosciutto
Toast bread on each side under oven broiler. Spread one side of each slice toast with fig jam, then spread with mascarpone. Return to oven; broil about 2 to 3 minutes. Add black pepper; top each on with 2 slices Prosciutto. Serve hot. Makes 6 open-faced sandwiches.

Let me know what you think.
