A Spanish twist on traditional ham and cheese sandwich which makes the old version feel less classy than this.


1 baguette
1 tomato, wedged
Drizzle of olive oil
250 grams / 8.80 ounces serrano ham
150 grams / 5.30 ounces manchego cheese, sliced


  1. Halve the baguette and rub the wedges of tomato over the bread, crushing in the process.
  2. Drizzle over the olive oil.
  3. Layer the cheese and ham on top and finish with the top of the baguette.
  4. Slice and serve immediately.
