  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons European butter, at room temperature)
  • 2 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 baguette (halved crosswise and then lengthwise)
  • 12 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto cotto


  1. This recipe originally appeared on Giada Entertains. Episode: Panini Party.
  2. Preheat the broiler to high.
  3. Using a rubber spatula, mix together the butter and 1 1/2 cups of the Parmesan in a medium bowl. Spread the mixture evenly on the cut sides of the baguette quarters, then sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup Parmesan.
  4. Place the baguettes, cut-side up, on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil until golden brown and bubbly, about 3 minutes. Remove to a cutting board and allow to cool.
  5. Pile the prosciutto cotto on top of the baguettes. Slice each quarter into 4 pieces. Serve open-faced.
