One day, the bistro that served this sandwich closed. It was a sad, sad day. We all lamented the death of “the sandwich”.
Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months, and months turned into years.
I was in the store recently and saw a lone block of harvarti in the cheese case. I thought to myself, “Hey, when was the last time I had some harvarti?” At that moment, happy memories of “the sandwich” came running back.
I’ve decided to bring back the glory that was “the sandwich” and share it with the world with a few tweaks.
The reason we became such addicts to two pieces of bread and the fillings in between, is because it had all the best things about good flavors married together. Warm, gooey harvarti, crunchy nuts, salty ham, fruity mayonnaise, and sweet pears came together in such harmony…well, it could make me drive over 60 minutes round trip.
The original sandwich and my version below are the same with the exception of prosciutto in place of ham and fresh pears in place of canned ones.
So without further adieu, I give to you “the sandwich”.
Now here’s to hoping these ingredients are already in your home or only a short drive away. If they aren’t, 60 minutes round trip is well worth it if that’s what it takes…trust me.
