Sandwiches with a Spanish Touch

We all know that there are lots of sandwich fillings. There are the classics, like ham and cheese, tuna and mayo, vegetables… All of them delicious! But sometimes, you have to take a risk to get the more elegant flavors. With hot weather, many are beginning to make plans for picnics. But these plans do not have to be inherently synonymous with boring food. Check out these recipes for sandwich fillings that will surprise you with their flavors.

Mahón Cheese and Mushroom Sandwich

  • Sliced Mushrooms (1 pack)
  • Bread (4 slices)
  • Onion (1)
  • Butter
  • Olive Oil
  • Mahón cheese (2 slices)
  • Pancetta (1 thick slice)
  • Salt and Black Pepper

This sandwich recipe is perfect for a picnic or a party. Start by slicing the onion and the pancetta. Put both ingredients on a baking sheet along with the mushrooms, brushing them with olive oil and sprinkling them with salt and pepper. Bake them at 200 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Put a slice of the mahón on a slice of bread, and put the mushroom mixture on top of that. Place another slice of bread on top of the mushroom mixture, heat the butter in a pan, and grill it on both sides.

Seafood Sandwich

  • Multigrain bread (8 slices)
  • Prawns (125 g)
  • Tuna (2 cans)
  • Krab Stick (125 g)
  • Onion
  • Egg (1)
  • Gerkin Pickles (4)
  • Capers (1 tbsp)
  • Lettuce (50 g)
  • Mayonnaise
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Black Pepper

This sandwich is a delight that you can’t miss. The first step is to defrost the prawns and peel them. Next, sautee them in a frying pan with olive oil. Meanwhile, boil the egg. When the egg is ready, take out the yolk, which we will use later in the recipe. You can simply cut the egg in half and remove the yolk with a spoon.

Chop the onion and capers into tiny pieces. Cut the krab stick and pickles into thin slices. Throw the onions, capers, krab stick, and pickles into a bowl with the prawns and tuna. Add the mayonnaise and mix. The mixture should be more or less dry. Add the egg yolk by smashing it into the mixture with a fork. Season it and let it cool in the fridge for 40 minutes.

To construct the sandwich, place the lettuce slices on both slices of bread and put the filling on top of one of the slices. Now put the two slices together. The lettuce keeps the slices of bread from getting soggy.

  • Sobrasada (a type of sausage) (180 g)
  • Sliced Cheese
  • Honey (100 g)

The Sobrasada from Mallorca is one of the most flavorful sausages. In this case, we will use the spreadable kind. Mix the honey with the sobrasada and spread over toasted bread. Place a slice of cheese on top of this. You can garnish the sandwich with a bit more honey on top of the cheese, but it is not necessary.

Our Advice

You can put a finishing touch on this sandwich with a few leaves of lettuce.
