Spanish Style Pressed Ham and Cheese Sandwiches
- 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
Preheat 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 to 4 minutes on each side. Cut sandwiches into 3 sections each and serve for a simple starter to any meal.
