SERRANO HAM SNACKS

Serrano ham can be eaten in any way: in a sandwich, toast… but here, we present you the way to have really nice snacks for any moment. You’ll see the recipe is really easy.
             Ingredients:
                   – A loaf of bread
                   – Serrano ham
                   – Olive oil
                   – Salt
                   – Tomato (optional)
                   – Parsley
Cut the loaf of bread in slices and toast them. Place them in a plate, pour some olive oil and add salt to taste. You can, either, cut the tomato in slices and add them to the toasts or give the toasts a rub with it, so they will have the tomato taste. Sprinkle the parsley over the toasts and add the ham on.

TIPS:  – serve it cold with some mayonnaise.
         – all measures are to taste, if you see the mixture is a little bit thick, add some more milk; if it
            is a little bit liquid, add some more bread.
         – if you cannot find evaporated milk, try to use normal milk or cream.
Enjoy your meal!!                                                                                                                                                                                                             Español

SANDWICH-PIZZA

Here you are an idea to be cooked in a second. It’s easy, funny and healthy (much less greasy than a pizza) recommended for anybody, overmore children who will love it. Actually my parents used to cook it for us instead of ordering a pizza anywhere, I guess.
                     Ingredients (as in the photo):
                               – Bread, some slices (I usually have 4 for each person)
                               – Spices: rosemary, parsley or basil (choose the one you like most)
                               – Tomato sauce
                               – Sliced Cheese
                               – (Serrano) Ham
                               – Bacon (although in the photos there’s no bacon, add it)
Preheat the oven 200º
This is like cooking a pizza, so take the bread and spread tomato over, then add the spice you want and some salt. After that, place the cheese, the ham in strips and the bacon in little pieces or bits all around the bread. You can also add some goats cheese or other type.
Put in the oven until the bread is toasted and crunchy. And here you are!!

TAPAS

Here you are some ideas for great and delicious starters.
In the photo below we have three different starters, the base of all them is toasted bread, any kind of bread. In my opinion, the biggest or longest the slice is, the best.

1.- Strawberry jam and goats cheese: Very easy!!

    Take each slice and spread the jam all over. Then cut, as you like, the goats cheese.
    Tips: you can also use rapsberry jam, no others, add it on the bread or on the cheese.
For the two next ones, first rub a garlic over the bread (optional), pour a little olive oil and add salt.

2.- Tomato, lettuce, roastbeef and honey-mustard: Exquisite!!

     Put some tomato and lettuce on the bread, then a roastbeef slice or more and at the end add some
     mustard as a special and tasty touch.
     Tips: you can use any mustard type you like most.

3.- Tomato, lettuce, serrano ham and salmorejo: Original!

     As in the previous one, put the tomato and lettuce first, then one or more slices of ham, and use
     salmorejo as a sauce.
Great and tasty starters!!

GARLIC BREAD

An easy and delicious way to prepare home-made garlic bread
                  Ingredients:
                             – White bread (1 slice per person should be ok)
                             – 1 peeled clove of garlic
                             – 1 tomato
                             –  Olive oil
                             – Salt
                             – Parsley
Toast the bread. Then rub the garlic and the tomate on both sides of each bread slice. Pour some olive oil over the slices (this is very important) and add salt and parsley, use your hands to better mix all the ingredients so the taste will be great. Cut the slices horizontally or however you want. (This step can be done after the bread is toasted.)
Serve as you like and enjoy!!
