Prosciutto, Goat Cheese and Fig Sandwiches
Makes 6 sandwiches
6 oz soft mild goat cheese (3/4 cup) at room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons butter, softened
6 (4- to 5-inch) soft round seeded rolls, split
6 fresh figs, trimmed and sliced lengthwise 1/4 inch thick
1/2 pound paper-thinly sliced prosciutto
12 arugula leaves, tough stems discarded
Stir together the goat cheese and pepper with a fork. Spread butter on cut sides of the rolls. Make sandwiches with rolls, peppered goat cheese, figs, prosciutto, and arugula.
Ham, melon, and Prosciutto would make a good tea sandwich.
As would smoked salmon and cream cheese.
