Prosciutto, Melon and Provolone Grilled Cheese Sandwich -

With April being national grilled cheese month, I wanted to come up with a sandwich that was both unusual and special. When I told my husband that I was going to make a Prosciutto, Melon & Provolone Grilled Cheese Sandwich, he was less than thrilled…he even said they sounded “gross”.

Fast forward to about a half an hour after he’d uttered the “g” word while we were sitting down to lunch. I eyed him suspiciously as he bravely started eating.

I waited patiently….”WELL?” I asked. “What do you think???”

“I’m thinking it’s a lot better than I thought it was going to be.” he said. “I thought the melon would turn into a mushy mess but it actually held its texture better than I thought it was going to.” “I like it!” he said. “I think I’ll have another.”   Needless to say, I was a happy camper 🙂

Break out of your pre-conceived notion of what a  grilled cheese should be and try a Proscuitto, Melon & Provolone Grilled Cheese Sandwich. You may even go back for seconds!
