It's called Bocadilla de Jamón Serrano Y Manchego. In Spain, it's served in quaint cafes with cafe con leche (espresso with steamed milk and sugar). This is a great game-day snack or make-ahead picnic or lunch sandwich. I add a handful of chips, but you could serve chilled melon slices or other (hot or cold) tapas with this Spanish-style ham and cheese sandwich.

The original recipe is for 2 servings. But it's pretty filling, so it could easily serve 4 as a snack or light lunch.

How to Make Spanish Ham and Cheese Sandwich-Bocadillo de Jamón

Step-by-Step

  1. Slice baguette in half, lengthwise. Drizzle olive oil on the inside of both halves of the bread.
  2. Arrange the ham on the bottom half of the baguette, then arrange Manchego cheese slices on top of the ham. Then arrange the piquillo peppers over the cheese. Then (if using the olives) evenly distribute the olives on top of the peppers.
  3. Place the other half of the bread on top. Cut the baguette in half. To serve, cut both portions in half (for easier handling), and serve with tapas or your favorite chips.
