Bocadillo (Sandwich)

SERVES: 2 PREP: 8 minutes TOTAL TIME: 15 minutes

Do you think “sandwich” sounds as exotic to Spanish people as “bocadillo” does to us? Cuz they mean the same thing.

This is like the best ham and cheese sandwich you will ever have and that’s all I need to say about it. (But since I am me I will say a little more.) Try to get really good ham if you can find it. Serrano ham is the Spanish equivalent of Prosciutto di Parma, and goes really well with the slightly sharp Manchego cheese. But even if you can only get Prosciutto - or plain old thinly sliced deli ham - you’ll be golden here.

  • 2 ripe medium Roma tomatoes

  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing the bread

  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

  • 2 individual-sized baguettes, halved lengthwise

  • 1 garlic clove, halved

  • 5 ounces (15 to 16 thin slices) Prosciutto or Jamon Serrano (Spanish cured ham)

  • 4 ounces thinly sliced Manchego cheese (use a cheese shaver at home)
