How to make the best Jamón Sandwich

The ham sandwich, also popularly known as a ham sandwich, is undoubtedly one of the finest culinary pleasures there is, but it doesn't taste good just anywhere. If you're a fan of this delicacy, you've probably noticed this, so Do you want to know how to make the best ham sandwich for yourself at home?

Well, you're in luck because at Enrique Tomás, we've discovered the secret, and we're going to share it with you!


This is the trick to making the best Iberian ham sandwich!

Making a ham sandwich is just like making an omelet, even though it's straightforward, getting the perfect flavor has its tricks. However, at Enrique Tomás, we've found the secret, and after forty years of experience, believe us, it's this!

The ingredients you'll need are:

  • 1 roll of 175g white wheat flour with double fermentation
  • 4 ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 40g Iberian acorn-fed ham
  • 1 grated tomato


Preparation of the ham sandwich with tomato

  1. The first thing you need to do is preheat the oven to 180ºC and, while waiting for it to heat up, grate the tomato using a grater and put it in a small bowl.

  2. If the oven has reached the desired temperature, cut the roll in half vertically and place both slices in the oven. Leave them in for a few minutes, checking on them from time to time.

  3. After this time, take the roll out of the oven and let it cool a bit. This step is more important than it seems because preparing the ham sandwich with overly hot bread could affect the flavor and texture of the Iberian ham.

  4. If the bread has cooled down, spread the tomato on both slices and drizzle with olive oil. If you prefer it without tomato, that's fine; it's just as delicious!

  5. Now, let's move on to the ham. You can do two things:

    • If you have your own piece of ham, slice it thin enough for it to melt in your mouth but thick enough to taste its flavor. The key is to let the knife slide beneath each slice. You can cut them from the ham's meat if you want them to be tender.
    • If you don't have a whole leg, you can buy an 80g pack of sliced ham, and since you only need 40g per sandwich, you can make another sandwich later!

  6. Once the ham is ready, distribute it over the roll and close it. Finally, place the roll on a ceramic plate and cut it horizontally to divide it into two halves for easier eating, and you're done!
