  • Author: Camille Styles
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


Filled with crunchy pear, salty prosciutto, and creamy mozzarella, this grilled cheese is the perfect sandwich for a cozy dinner.


  • 1 ciabatta roll, or a 5-6-inch piece of ciabatta bread
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fig preserves
  • A few pieces of torn mozzarella
  • A handful of arugula
  • 1/2 pear
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • Balsamic glaze/reduction


    1. Preparation: Set your oven to broil and place a rack on the upper third level.
    2. Toast the Ciabatta: Halve the ciabatta bread and brush both sides with a little olive oil. Toast the top sides until they’re golden. Flip and lightly toast the other sides.
    3. Add the Flavors: Spread fig preserves generously on both sides of the ciabatta.
    4. To one side, add torn mozzarella, arugula, and prosciutto. To the other side, layer on torn mozzarella, sliced pear, and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes.
    5. Melt and Crisp: Pop both sides back under the broiler “open-faced style,” and broil until the cheese is perfectly melted.
    6. Final Touches: Once out of the oven, sprinkle some fresh rosemary and drizzle with balsamic reduction.
    7. Serve: Press the two sides together, slice, and enjoy your sophisticated grilled cheese.
