Prosciutto and Mozzarella Sandwiches with Fig Jam
2 ciabatta rolls, sliced in half lengthwise
3 tablespoons fig jam
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (you could use sliced cheese, but I usually shred it so the cheese melts quickly and evenly)
6 very thin slices of prosciutto
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread fig jam on the cut sides of both rolls. Sprinkle a quarter of the cheese on the bottom slice of each roll. Top the cheese with prosciutto, and then sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top of the prosciutto. (Having cheese on the top and bottom of your sandwich will help "glue" it together.) Close up each sandwich with the top half of the rolls.
Wrap sandwiches in foil and place them in the preheated oven. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the bread is crusty. Unwrap the sandwiches and serve them while they're nice and hot.
