Spanish-Style Pressed Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

Serve with 30 Minute Garlic-Parsley Chicken Under a Brick and Smothered Mushrooms and Kale.


  • 8 slices crusty bread
  • 4 Pequillo peppers or 2 whole roasted red peppers, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 pound thinly sliced Manchego cheese
  • 1/2 pound sliced serrano ham or prosciutto


Pre-heat a grill pan to medium. Build sandwiches of sliced peppers, cheese and ham. Place sammies on grill and press with a foil covered brick or weighted down with a heavy skillet and cook to crust and mark bread and melt cheese, 3-4 minutes on each side. Cut sandwiches into 3 sections each and serve for a simple starter to any meal.
