Spread 1 tablespoon of fig jam on two slices
of bread and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of
chopped pistachios (if using); reserve. Evenly
divide the crumbled goat cheese over the top of
the remaining two bread slices, leaving at least a
½-inch border around the edges. Layer each with
half the prosciutto. Top with the reserved bread
slices, jam side down.
Preheat the Cuisinart® Sandwich Maker. Lightly
brush plates with melted butter or oil. Carefully
place the assembled sandwiches onto the
preheated Sandwich Maker. Use firm pressure
to close lid; lock and cook. Green indicator light
will go off and red light will come on (this may
not happen immediately). When green indicator
light reappears, sandwich is cooked. Add 15 to
30 seconds additional cooking time if a toastier
sandwich is preferred. Remove with a heatproof
silicone spatula. Allow sandwich to cool slightly
for 2 to 3 minutes before serving, as filling will be
very hot.
