WW Recipe of the Day: Prosciutto, Pear and Blue Cheese Sandwich
I was able to create this gourmet restaurant quality sandwich at home today in minutes. And even managed to shoot a photo before taking a bite of my yummy open-face prosciutto pear blue cheese sandwich.
I got the idea from the Weight Watchers 360 Family Style Cookbook and was lucky enough to have everything I needed right in the fridge.
Served with a simple green salad, it made for a satisfying lunch that kept me happy all afternoon. It's amazing how much food affects your psyche.
Prosciutto Pear Blue Cheese Sandwich Recipe Notes
Don't skip heating the pear. I almost did in the name of laziness, but it's the warm pears that elevate this sandwich from good to great.
If you don't like prosciutto or can't get it, I think any high quality deli ham could be substituted.
Cut into thin slices or small squares, this open-face prosciutto pear blue cheese sandwich would make a yummy appetizer too.

According to my calculations, each sandwich has 288 calories and:
