When I was looking through the Scarpetta cookbook, I spotted Marino’s Breakfast Bagel Sandwich and noted it mentally. Then when I went shopping the prosciutto just about jumped into my shopping basket. NOT cheap cooking. But very delicious.
I bought some onion bagels, prosciutto, and Swiss cheese. Split the bagels in half and toasted one half, then buttered it. Topped it with a slice of prosciutto and a slice of Swiss cheese and ran under the broiler for a minute or two.
Youngest declined to even consider them this morning and went with her usual egg salad sandwich for breakfast. I made mine and it came out from under the broiler right as my eldest came downstairs. She looked at it and said “What is that?” I told her and offered it. She took it and said “Oh, this is REALLY good!” I made myself another sandwich from the bottom half of the bagel.
And I said not cheap cooking, but I think if you compared it to a box of sugared cereal, you’d find it not that outrageous on a per serving basis and probably more nutritious. Not healthy either, but I’d rather eat this than what a lot of people seem to eat for breakfast!
But tomorrow it’s probably back to homemade granola and yogurt. 😉 Well, maybe the next day. I have enough prosciutto and bagels for at least two more of these!
The recipe sounds simple and delicious.
Eating should be about trying new things and tastes and it’s an excellent curiosity to install in young ones as well.
