Prosciutto Hock Into Sandwich
I got a chunk of prosciutto hock from Whole Foods to make prosciutto crisps but still had a bit leftover. I did my best to slice the small round chunk using my super sharp still very new Henckel knife. The slices, or rather shavings, were good but not the the delicate, pink, beautifully transparent pieces you can get at your deli.
It crowned a Trader Joe's onion roll along with oven-roasted tomatoes, red leaf lettuce, sliced onion, and dijon mustard. Gave it a good warming up in the toaster oven to make a "freshly made" sandwich taste the next day at work. The edges of the roll got nicely brown and crisp while the prosciutto was heated up slightly. Although assembling the sandwich after just toasting the bread would have been optimal, it was just a work lunch. I'm not complaining.
However, I drank a TON of water after that sandwich (I usually drink 1 cup a day) because of the copious amount of salt in the pile of not-perfectly-transparent prosciutto "shavings". Is there such a thing as a mini meat/deli slicer that won't cost an arm and a leg? That would be perfect for turning that prosciutto hock into perhaps a few less salty sandwiches instead of one delicious salty one.
