Spinach and Proscuitto Grilled Cheese

I saw Giada make this on the Food Network so I decided to try it. But I didn't follow the directions exactly since I didn't have a food processor on hand, and I had proscuitto not pancetta. I also halved the recipe. Take a look at the link if you want the original recipe.

4 pieces proscuitto
4 Tbs. butter (can probably use less)
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. oil
1 cup packed chopped baby spinach

Bake proscuitto at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes, until crispy and brown. Remove from oven and place proscuitto on paper towel to drain and cool.

Combine softened butter, cheese, oil, and spinach. Spread mixture onto a slice of bread - top with one slice of crumbled proscuitto. Top with another piece of bread. Grill on panini grill/press (I just used my George Foreman) until cheeses are melted.

Makes approximately four sandwiches.
