You’ve all had a toasted sandwich in a Majorcan bar – ever wondered how they are made?
The Majorcan Toasted Sandwich is a delicious and easy-to-make sandwich originating from the Spanish island of Mallorca.
This sandwich is usually made with sobrasada, a type of cured, spreadable pork sausage, and is usually served with a slice of cheese and a drizzle of honey.
With this toasted sandwich recipe you can now recreate that great taste in your own home and here’s how…
Preparation time: 8 minutes
- 2 x slices of white bread
- Mayonnaise (to taste)
- Butter or olive oil (to taste)
- Filling (cooked bacon, cheese, sobrasada, etc)
Put a heavy-based frying pan on medium heat – no oil or fat.
Butter or oil the two slices of white bread.
On one slice put a layer of mayonnaise. Decide on your filling – anything from just cheese to a full salad and cooked bacon filling.
Assemble just as you would a ‘cold’ sandwich.
Slightly press the sandwich together and push on to the hot pan (careful not to burn your fingers!).
After a couple of minutes, using a fish slice or spatula, check for ‘toasting’ and if a good colour, turn the sandwich on to its other side and repeat the process.
NOTE: For best results, slice fillings thinly.
Now enjoy your toasted sandwich – the filling should be warm, but still retain a ‘crunch’.
