Clooney's Cheesy Dreamies

Many women think George Clooney is the ultimate dreamboat, others think he can be a bit cheesy. So, in honour of George, here's a cheesy nibble that everyone will love. The key is to use challah (egg bread), as it has more taste and makes better sandwiches than many other breads.


  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons fig chutney
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • 1 cup grated Fontina or other Italian cheese
  • 1 cup shredded radicchio
  • 8 slices egg bread, crusts removed


Place mayonnaise and chutney in a bowl and stir to combine. Butter one side of each slice of bread and lay buttered side down on parchment paper. Spread inside of each slice of bread with mayonnaise chutney mixture. Lay prosciutto on top of 4 prepared slices, thickly layer on cheese, sprinkle with radicchio and top with remaining bread slices, buttered side up.

Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches, fry sandwiches for 2 to 4 minutes per side, pressing down using a spatula, or until sandwiches are golden brown and cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.

Slice sandwiches into quarters on the diagonal. Reheat when needed. Makes 16 mini-sandwiches.
