1 sandwich


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 1 small clove garlic, minced

  • 1 cup packed baby spinach

  • 2 thin slices prosciutto (about 1/2 ounce)

  • cup shredded provolone and/or Gouda cheese (1 ounce)

  • 2 slices whole-wheat bread

  • 2 teaspoons melted butter


  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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
