“Pan tumaca”

If a restaurant were to name something after you, what would it be? Describe it. (Bonus points if you give us a recipe!)

I like simple food, nothing too elaborated. I love crepes and pasta (my favorite, spaghetti Carbonara). For a quick-lunch I would choose a Catalonian traditional recipe called “Pan tumaca” with ham. Is very simple, healthy and delicious.

Pan tumaca means in Catalonian bread with tomato. To fix it you need a loaf of white bread, tomatoes, olive oil, salt and “jamón serrano” a variety of Spanish dry-cured ham.

Cut big slices of bread depending of how many people you have for lunch. You can toast the bread if you want. Cut ripe tomatoes in half and rub them over one of the sides of the slices of bread until covered. Season them with salt and olive oil and put slender slices of ham on top of them. That’s it. Quick and delicious.

Daily Prompt: You, the Sandwich.
