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!
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!
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.

- Whisk together Russian dressing. Place an oven rack at the top of your oven and preheat oven to broil.
- Toast a slice of bread in the oven slightly. Remove from oven and spread with Russian dressing. Top with prosciutto and brie. Broil for a few minutes until the brie gets nice and melty. Serve with salad greens, an orange slice, and Russian dressing (for the salad).
