Tomato, Mozzarella, Prosciutto and Basil Open Faced Sandwich

Tomato, Buffalo Mozzarella, Prosciutto and Basil on top of a ciabatta bun toasted in 400 degree oven for 8 minutes is the best tasting sandwich you will ever bite into!  I could eat these sandwiches everyday they are so delicious.  So find some really ripe beefsteak tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella, 
prosciutto and of course the basil,
to make these fabulous sandwiches.

The Players!
Olive oil, 1 ball of buffalo mozzarella, 1 large beefsteak tomato, 
basil and a few slices of prosciutto.

These tomatoes were the best I have had since last summer.  Bought them over at Mc Kinney's Farmers Market

Rub each sliced bun with olive oil and toast 
under the broiler until lightly browned. 
Remove from broiler and top with a lice of tomato

Add a slice of the mozzarella, then prosciutto and top with basil.

It's a work of art!

No words can explain this...

If you can't manage this with a fork and knife, just pick it up 
and eat it like a piece of pizza.

Happy Eating!
