Course lunch
Cuisine Italian, Mediterranean

Ingredients
  

  • 8 slices whole grain or whole wheat bread
  • 1 ripe avocado halved and pitted
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 4 romaine lettuce leaves torn into 8 eight pieces total
  • large ripe tomato sliced into eight rounds
  • 2 ounces prosciutto cut into eight thin slices

Instructions
 

  • Toast the bread and place on a large platter.
  • Scoop the avocado flesh out of the skin into a small bowl. Add the pepper and salt.
  • Using a fork or a whisk gently mash the avocado until it resembles a creamy spread. Spread the avocado mash overall 8 pieces of toast.
  • To make one sandwich, take one slice of avocado toast, and top it with lettuce leaf, tomato slice, and 1 prosciutto slice. Top with another slice of each lettuce tomato and prosciutto, then cover with the second piece of avocado toast, avocado side down on the prosciutto. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make three more sandwiches and serve.

Notes

Prep tip: Place the avocado standing up on your cutting board with the stem end down. Slice the fruit in half maneuvering your knife around the pit. Then simply twist the two sides and pull them apart. Scoop the pit out with a spoon.
