Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
