Seasonal Potluck: Serrano, Manchego and Apple Sandwiches

Holy crap this is the greatest sandwich I have ever eaten!!!! All the elements come together perfectly. I, of course, skipped the mayo and had to substitute prosciutto for serrano, but still……totally amazeballs!

I want to say a HUGE happy 1st birthday to my mini homie Leila!! I’ve loved watching you grow the past 12 months, and I am really looking forward to the day you can say “Betsy”. We’ll devote this next year to learning that, what do you say?

I’ve got a lot of work to do for her party on Saturday. I’m super pumped to share some pictures with you all. Busy food styling today, but plan to do some birthday cake baking tomorrow.

    As a vegetarian alternative, I would hold any meat. This would still be a great quick nutritious sandwich. I live in Mexico so manchengo as well as the other great Mexican cheeses are so cheap!
