- Cured ham and cheese sandwich ingredients
- Cured Serrano ham (6 oz)
- Manchego sheep's milk cheese (1.1 lbs)
- Barras Gallegas Galician bread (4 loaves)
- Enough to feed 10 people!
One of the very first orders of business when we arrive at Barajas airport in Madrid is to stop by one of the many cafes and order a café con leche and a bocadillo de jamón. Delicious in its simplicity, a bocadillo consists of a loaf of crusty bread cut in half, coated with extra virgin olive oil, then layered with cured ham and cheese. You can make a bocadillo with many other ingredients - a wedge of tortilla española for instance, or roasted peppers, or thin slices of grilled pork. But to us, a bocadillo of jamón and queso is the purest expression of this very Spanish sandwich.
This kit features four big loaves of bread from Galicia, crusty and delicious after 10 minutes of baking, 6 ounces of thinly sliced cured Serrano ham and 1.1 pounds of young Manchego sheep's milk cheese. You can make four large bocadillos, enough to feed ten people!
Assembling a bocadillo could not be easier! Slice open the freshly baked bread, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, layer thin slices of jamón and cheese and you are done. If you want a bit more complexity, add a few piquillo or guindilla peppers to the mix. Cut the bocadillo in four pieces and serve with a cool cup of gazpacho.

"Since I left Spain in 1990 I've had this huge craving for a bocadilio. I've tried for many years duplicate this outstanding sandwich, no joy. Now, I've found to near perfection, that sandwich at a price less than an airline ticket. Thank you, La Tienda!"

"Best kit ever! We received 4 loaves of delicious Galecian bread (oh my!- we gave a few away), 1/4 round of cheese, and a pack of jamon. The bread was so easy to bake- 15 min on 375. Cut the break when it comes out, pour on some olive oil, a few slices of the jamon, and a few slivers of the cheese= heaven. This will nto be the last time we order this kit. These sandwiches were so amazing."
