Table view of a sandwich filled with Ham, melted Brie, Prosciutto, and Basil Aioli.I think my appetite has seasons. When the worst of winter is over, I start looking forward to meals that we can take outside in the sunshine or enjoy with a nice salad or piece of fruit. My comfort food leads way to fresh lighter fare. Even though you could make and enjoy this sandwich any time of year, the freshness of the basil with all of the other ingredients just make me look forward to warmer days.

Photo of Hellmann\'s Mayonaise, Pepperidge Farm Sourdough Bread, and Hillshire Farm Honey Ham.I haven’t always been a sandwich person. It’s because the sandwiches that I grew up with started with bread that stuck to the roof of your mouth and were too dry to swallow. You know that I love baking bread, but like everyone else don’t always have the time. That’s when I reach for Pepperidge Farm Farmhouse™ Hearty Sourdough bread. John loves sourdough and I love that they are big and soft and made with wholesome flavorful ingredients just like my homemade bread is. I also love that this isn’t a bread that falls apart as soon as you load it with your other ingredients!A Slice of bread layered with slices of ham.

One of the star ingredients of this sandwich is Hillshire Farm® Thin Sliced Honey Ham lunchmeat. This ham provides a sweetness that is a nice contrast to the sourdough flavor of the bread and the saltiness of the crispy prosciutto. I love that Hillshire Farm® Thin Sliced Honey Ham comes in a resealable container that keeps it fresh and protects it from getting torn up or crushed so every last bit of it gets used.A slice of bread topped with shaved ham and Brie.

This whole sandwich is taken up a notch with the Basil Aioli. That sounds pretty fancy, doesn’t it? It is actually very quick and easy to put together. I blended fresh basil right into Hellmann’s® Real Mayonnaise which made a creamy delicious aioli that transformed this sandwich. You can taste the freshness of the ingredients that Hellmann’s® Real Mayonnaise uses and I love the squeezable bottle that assures that I can use every last drop.

I can’t think of a thing that I would do differently next time I make this sandwich! A slice of bread topped with sliced ham, brie, basil aioli, and crispy prosciutto.

Brie is good with everything. The crunchiness of the prosciutto really takes this up a notch,

Sweet, salty, and with a basil aioli? I'm in! Now if I couldn't get a hold of fresh basil what's the substitution for dried?

Thanks Matt! If I couldn't get fresh basil I don't think I would use dried. You could use fresh tarragon which would be very good too. If you just don't have a lot of fresh options, I would use a dried Italian or herb de province. Probably 1/2 teaspoon.

You are speaking to my heart with this sandwich! I am such a fan of brie, especially when it's all indulgently melty as in your photos. The basil aioli must be such a lovely flavor pairing with the ham, prosciutto, and cheese. Now we all know what I'm having for lunch tomorrow! :)
