Persimmon Grilled Cheese with Brie and Prosciutto

Persimmon Grilled Cheese with Prosciutto

Alison Needham
Obviously you know how to make a grilled cheese sandwich, right? I like to make several thin layers of fillings and cheese, but do what ever floats your boat. Don't like (or can't find) goat brie? No problem--use your favorite cheese and relax. This is comfort food, gourmet style. And really, anything goes.

  • Heavy Skillet


  • Heat a skillet over a medium flame. Add the prosciutto slices and cook until just crisp on both sides. It will only take a couple of minutes. Wash the pan and return it to the stove. Heat it over medium-low heat.
  • Spread the mustard on one side of all the bread. To two slices of bread add a layer of cheese, then the persimmons, another layer of cheese, then the prosciutto, and finally a third layer of cheese. Top with the remaining bread.
  • Brush the tops and bottoms of the sandwiches with melted butter or olive oil and place in the preheated pan. Cook slowly, turning frequently, until the sandwiches are a deep golden brown and the cheese is melted (note: goat cheddar doesn't melt as much as goat brie or regular cheddar).
  • Slice each sandwich in half and serve immediately.
