Sourdough bread adds a special artisan touch to this easy Italian Style Sourdough Melt. Inspired by a famous San Francisco sourdough bread, this sandwich is easily made at home.

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons pesto
  • 4 slices sourdough bread
  • 1/4 pound sliced deli ham
  • 1/4 pound sliced deli salami
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 4 slices provolone cheese

What to Do

  1. Spread pesto evenly over one side of each bread slice. Equally divide the ham, salami, tomato, and provolone cheese on two slices of the bread.
  2. Heat sandwiches open-faced in a toaster oven, or on a baking sheet in a 350 degree F. oven for 5 to 7 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  3. Top with remaining 2 slices of bread, and serve.

This sandwich sounds absolutely delicious, however I have never been a fan of pesto and usually shy away from recipes that have pesto, especially pesto sauce. Is there anything I can use to substitute for the pesto?

Try Costco or Sam's Club for a good Sourdough bread. Costco even carried the authentic for a while. Did not find it last time but they make a good one too in their bakery. I am sure Sam's is good too.

This sounds wonderful. However, it's impossible to find real authentic San Francisco style sourdough where I live. Any suggestions?
