It’s swap time again! This is my third swap and I’m officially addicted. The other two times I have participated it was Blogger’s Choice and I got to choose whatever I wanted from the assigned blog. It was kind of nice having a dish just given to me – it means I don’t have to spend hours deciding what dish to make!
This time, I got the Prosciutto TBM Sandwich from Does Not Cook Well With Others (DNCWWO). She was inspired by the TBM sandwich at Cosi, a sandwich chain that originated out east. Lucky for me, there was one in Madison, WI as well so I have had the opportunity to eat there. I don’t recall ever ordering the TBM, but next time I’m in Madison I will put it on my must-try list!
Apologies in advance for the picture – I rushed through this so I could get the sandwich from the plate and into my mouth as quickly as possible. It was late, and I was hungry
Prosciutto TBM Sandwich

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoon red wine vinegar

3 vine-ripened tomatoes, sliced about 1/4-inch thick
15 basil leaves

- Slice the loaf of sourdough bread into 6 – 1/2 inch slices. Brush one side of each slice of bread with vinaigrette with a pastry brush.
