Serendipity-Style Prosciutto Sandwich

I love open-faced sandwiches. Less bread, more filling! This looks terribly swanky but takes five minutes. This sandwich has a delicious homemade Russian dressing, prosciutto, and brie. That’s it!

Serendipity-Style Prosciutto Sandwich

It’s been over a decade since I had lunch at Serendipity 3 in New York City and I still haven’t stopped thinking about that sandwich. It had Russian dressing, brie, and thick, deli-style prosciutto piled high, served with a side salad and orange slices. I decided to recreate it for you today!

My open-faced prosciutto and brie sandwich with Russian dressing that I ate for lunch at Serendipity 3 in 2009. (I never forget a sandwich.)

I used an Italian loaf, but I believe my Serendipity sandwich used a dark bread. Use whatever floats your boat! I opted for Prosciutto di Parma because it’s my favorite and really good French brie. One bite and I felt like I was back on that magical trip to the Big Apple!

P.S. I posted a turkey and brie open-faced sandwich inspired by Serendipity two years ago so if you’re craving turkey, go check that recipe out too.
