A short while ago, a friend and I were swapping campfire stories—mostly about what we cook over an open fire. He mentioned skewering a slab of bacon and a hunk of cheddar on the end of a long stick and slowly toasting them until they're sizzling and melted. He then slapped them between a hard roll and enjoyed a yummy sandwich. Thinking it sounded delicious, I tried it myself. Unfortunately, just as the cheese reached maximum melt-itude and I was reaching for my bread, the hunk oozed off the stick and onto the coals (thankfully, I had a backup of PB&J). Not one to give up, on the next camping trip, I brought prosciutto to wrap around the cheese, thus enveloping it in a crispy, meaty crust and keeping it on the stick! SEE RECIPE »
