SERRANO HAM TOASTS & MORSEL

A nice idea to be prepared in a jiffy for those days you just don’t feel like cooking but want to prepare something different and original.
             Ingredients:
                   – 2 sandwich bread slices (per person)
                   – Serrano ham
                   – Sliced tomato
                   – Diced cheese (the one you like most)
                   – Slices of turkey breast (or any other cold cuts)

                   – Anchovies
                   – Olive oil
                   – Garlic
                   – Salt (optional)
Toast the bread, although it’s not necessary, give the bread slices a rub with the garlic, pour some olive oil and add the salt. Then put some tomato slices and the serrano ham.
For the morsel, just alternate all ingredients in any order: cheese, tomato, carrot, cold cuts and at the end an anchovy, if you like them. Add as many sequences as you like.

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!!

(ROLLED) PIE

A fast way to prepare a simple and original pie
This dish is ideal for those days you don’t feel like cooking anything and really want something different. Maybe you have thought, it can be difficult for somebody without experience in cooking but believe me, it cannot be easier.
        – Buy filo (phyllo) pastry sheets or something similar in the supermarket.
        – Preheat the oven 200º while preparing everything.
        – Follow the instructions written in the package in order to hydrate the filo sheets. In many of
          them, it is said to use margarine or butter but personally speaking, I prefer olive oil, much
          healthier!! So I lay one sheet on a baking paper and pour a little oil, use a spoon to spread it all
          over the sheet; and do the same with two more. (I don’t think you need more).
        – Ingredients: any you want your pie to have, as usual, use your imagination!!! For example: any kind
          of cheese, paté, (serrano) ham, chorizo, tomato, etc. (The amounts and size of your pie depend on
          how many people you will be.)
        – Cover your pie. If it is a big one, use other pastry sheets (don’t forget the olive oil over these
          new ones); if it is small, you can use the part without ingredients to cover it and create a nice
          square or rectangle. Or a roll!!, as in the photo below.
        – Put it in the oven for almost 30 minutes, as always, have a look just in case, not all ovens are
          the same.

TIPS: – If you add cheese, take into account that it will melt and maybe go out of the pastry!
        – Apart of using any ingredient you want, let’s be more creative! Cut the pastry into squares,
          triangles… and cook really nice starters or canapés.
Enjoy your meal!!                                                                                                                                                                                                             Español
