  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat a small skillet over medium-low heat. Add oil and garlic. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in spinach. Cover the pan and let stand until the spinach has wilted. Transfer the spinach to a small bowl.
  2. Layer the wilted spinach, prosciutto and cheese on one piece of bread; top with the other. Brush butter over both sides of the sandwich and place in the pan over low heat.
  3. Cook the sandwich, flipping as needed, until the cheese has melted and the bread is browned and crisp on each side, 6 to 10 minutes total.
