Majorcan Toasted Sandwich Recipe

Table of Contents

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
Serves: 1


  • 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’.
