Just to correct myself, I would put a bit of olive oil on the baguette before toasting because it gives a lovely flavour.

These were so delicious! I used pecorino romano instead of manchego (because my supermarket only sold manchego in 10oz blocks). I also forgot to brush the prosciutto with oil, but I'm so glad I did because the natural oil in the meat was more than enough. I even needed to blot the pieces after cooking like you would with bacon. I won't brush the bread with oil next time because you need to use way too much to be "generous", I'd rather skip the calories and eat more of these. So good!
