Proscuitto Sandwiches

Welcome back to blogging! Life + work = crazy = Lauren really missing sleep = no blogging. That pretty much sums up what's been going on. A couple of weeks ago (or is it a few weeks now??) I made a bunch of food for my church's prom. Yup, my church has prom and yes, I dressed up. :-) There were about 35-40 people or so there, so I got to cook in my church's industrial kitchen...I must have one of these...and it seemed to be a success!

1/2 cup water
1/8 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup small onion, sliced very thinly
Italian bread, sliced about 1/2 inch thick
Olive oil for brushing
1 large apple, thinly sliced
6 ounces Gouda, thinly sliced
Dijon mustard
1/2 pound prosciutto, thinly sliced

In small saucepan, bring water, cider vinegar, brown sugar, and onion to a boil. Cook for about three minutes. Let sit in the liquid and return to room temperature.

Lightly brush the sliced bread rounds with olive oil and toast in the oven until lightly browned.

To assemble the sandwiches, spread a small amount of mustard, top with slice of gouda, apple, and some onions. Wrap with the prosciutto.

Hint: After slicing the apple, let sit in lemon water to prevent browning. This is good especially if you're making these ahead!
