We like open-faced sandwiches a lot because then the taste of the meat is not overpowered by a plethora of bread. And it's fewer carbs! As a child, my mom would buy Westpfalian Schinken at a local German butcher shop. That type of ham is the German version of prosciutto. By the way, if you slice up the left over tomato, cucumber and onion and sprinkle with salt and vinegar, you'll have a little salad, too!
