Open Faced Prosciutto Sandwich

Open Faced Prosciutto Sandwich // A Well Crafted Party
There is nothing quite like a good sandwich. This sandwich is no exception. It is super simple to make, and freaking full of flavor. A big part of the flavor punch is due to the great ingredients. Believe me when I say that sometimes it makes a HUGE difference whether you buy quality ingredients over value priced items. Making a big stew? A few value items aren’t going to make a huge difference. But, when you have an item like this sandwich where there are few ingredients and you aren’t going to be changing the flavor profiles with a ton of seasoning and cooking… quality ingredients is where it is at.

Take for instance the butter in this sandwich. Sure, I could go with just any ole butter. But, a nice rich Irish or European style butter will lend a nice base for this sandwich. Heck, a great butter on a piece of bread with a sprinkle of salt is a treat in itself!

Open Faced Prosciutto Sandwich with Fig Spread and Black Pepper Cheddar

This recipe tells you how to build an individual sandwich. The amount of sandwiches you can make depends on the size of the bread that you buy and the amount of prosciutto comes in a package. Because these things are not standard, I didn’t elect to dictate serving size.

We enjoyed these at a picnic along with my open-faced crab sandwiches. But, these would also be fantastic made in miniature and served as appetizers at your next party!

Hot summer days and sandwiches just go well together. We recently headed out for a summer time picnic (yep, back there again… I just really like picnics!) and I wanted a couple of easy, but tasty sandwiches to serve. This is one of the two sandwiches I made for the afternoon.

Open Faced Crab Salad Sandwich

Makes approximately six sandwiches.


  • 4-6 oz crab (you can use freshly cooked crab or canned crab
  • juice of a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons of mayo
  • diced radishes & green onions for garnish
  • butter
  • salt & pepper
  • sliced crusty bread


  1. Mix the crab, lemon, mayo in a bowl and set into a container
  2. Spread a thin layer of butter on a slice of crusty bread
  3. Top the bread with the crab mixture
  4. sprinkle a garnish of radish and green onions
  5. Enjoy!

I served these with a zesty side of green bean salad.

Opal Apple and Grilled Chicken Salad



Salads are one of my favorite go-to items to make for daytime events. It is an inexpensive, simple, and tasty way to feed a crowd. At my sister’s “Apple of my Eye” Sip and See party, sponsored by Opal Apple, I needed easy to make items that didn’t involve a lot of cooking. I was in an unfamiliar kitchen, so I took the super simple route and got nearly everything pre-made. This salad in particular is an easy meal to serve.

I created this salad with the crisp semi-sweet, semi-sour taste of Opal Apples in mind. Bonus, I didn’t have to worry about the apples browning as the salad sat and waited to be eaten. The non-GMO apples actually retain their bright yellow color when cut.

Grilled Chicken Salad & Opal Apple Salad

Serves approximately 6 meal-sized salads or 12 side portions. All items were bought with ease of use in mind. This salad can also be made completely from scratch and will be equally (if not more) delicious.


  • 2 Bags of pre-cut and pre-washed Romaine Lettuce
  • 2 packages of pre-cooked Grilled, Sliced Chicken
  • 1 large Opal Apple thinly sliced and diced into large chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups shaved Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 3/4 cup Dried Cranberries (Dried Cherries would be equally as delicious!)
  • 3/4 cup house-made Apple Cider Vinaigrette (see below)


  1. Heat pre-cooked chicken in microwave
  2. In large bowl, toss lettuce, chicken, opal apple, dried cranberries, and Apple Cider Vinaigrette
  3. Top with Parmesan cheese & Sliced Almonds
  4. Eat!

Apple Cider Vinaigrette


  • 2/3 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


Mix all ingredients together and combine well. Add salt & pepper to taste! Seriously tasty, and simple!



This post was sponsored by Opal Apples. The thoughts in this post are my own. More information about Opal Apples: Opal is a bright yellow apple that is like none other with its beautiful appearance, distinctively crunchy texture, floral aroma and a sweet, tangy flavor. But one of the most incredible, and natural features of this non-GMO apple is that it does not brown after cutting so it stays crisp and fresh in your salads and your kids’ lunchboxes.
