The enticing scent of sage is a draw to this sandwich that is golden brown and bubbling with cheese. Filled with prosciutto and turkey and served on flatbread this is a crisply grilled delight.

Ingredients

4 bunches sage, leaves separated
Vegetable oil, as needed, for frying
16 slices flatbread
1 lb. mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
1 lb. cream cheese, at room temperature
1 lb. smoked turkey, thinly sliced
1 lb. prosciutto, thinly sliced
12 oz. lettuce leaves

Steps

1. In a heavy skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Briefly fry sage leaves until bright green and crispy. Remove from oil and drain; reserve.

2. In a bowl, combine mascarpone and cream cheeses.

3. Spread cheese on half the bread slices; layer with remaining ingredients and top with second slice of bread. Grill in a panini press or under a broiler until cheese bubbles; serve warm.

Communication is key, and [managers] are busy too. One tip I picked up from another director was to label my subject line with the header “action,” “information” or “response” followed by a brief description of the email contents. That way they can filter through their inboxes during their busy days to know which emails need their attention immediately and which they can save to read later.

We like to offer a constantly changing menu. Last year, I started a Pinterest account—not for marketing, but for my team, so that they can look to the recipes for inspiration and try something new. We tried protein cookies based onto a Pinterest recipe, and our residents loved them.

coal creek student salad bar

When I was visiting Minneapolis Public Schools, I saw that they have these cool signs on top of their salad bars. As soon as we got back, we re-created them. They are big and branded, and have the portion requirements. They say “Taste something new today” on one side, and we support our local farmers on the other. They help the bars look fresh and delish, and attract students’ eyes.
