This is quite possibly the fanciest, most insanely good ham and cheese toastie on the planet. The secret ingredient is Humboldt Fog, a surface-ripened, ash-coated goat cheese. The inside tastes chalky and sour like a standard chèvre, but the outside is oozy and silky like brie. Easily spreadable and meltable, it makes one killer grilled cheese sandwich.
Paired with prosciutto (a thinly sliced dry-cured ham) and cinnamon raisin bread, this sandwich will have you wondering why you've been making basic grilled cheeses. Try this for a special morning meal or for a midnight snack. Your taste buds will thank you.

If you cannot find Humboldt Fog goat cheese at your grocery, sub it out with regular chèvre.
Depending on how cheesy you prefer your sandwich, add more or less cheese to your liking.
1/4-1/2 cup Humboldt Fog goat cheese
2 slices cinnamon raisin bread
3 pieces prosciutto
1 tablespoon butter
- Spread the Humboldt Fog goat cheese between two slices of cinnamon raisin bread. Place the prosciutto on one piece of bread and sandwich the slices together.
- Preheat a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Melt the butter on the skillet.
- Add the sandwich to the skillet and cook on one side until the bread is golden brown, about two minutes. Flip and cook for another two minutes, or until the bread is golden brown. Cut in half and serve immediately.
