sharing (Italian) food to enjoy life

The Milano Sandwich

Posted by Jim Carfrae on November 23, 2010

Prosciutto PaninoA few us had the opportuniy to work at the Gournet Food and Wine Expo last week end. Our company sold slices of a panino we have named “The Milano” for one ticket each. The response was overwhelming, we sold over 3,000 slices! The reaction to the panino was amazing, some people came back four times in under an hour. Others asked, “is this where I can get the amazing sandwich everyone it talking about?”

As I told many people, it is easy to make at home, my kids have been making for a couple years. If you don’t have a press, make it like a grilled cheese sandwich. Here is the link for the recipe:


The one change we made at the show was to pour some Mastro olive oil inside as well as brushing on the outside, this added a beautiful flavour that I will always do in the future.

 The other things we did: when we ran out of prosciutto we replaced it with Smoked Prosciutto; and when we ran out of boconcini cheese we replaced it with provelone. I rated these adjustments as different, versus better or worse, the compliments did not stop. When we ran out of bread, we went to a nearby store to buy more, two times until they were sold out too.

A thank you to the many who tried and enjoyed “The Milano”.
