Grilled Serrano Ham and Manchego Cheese Crostino from Chef Bobby Flay
A provocative interpretation of the grilled ham and cheese sandwich, here rendered with a sophistication that belies its simplicity.
12 slices French bread, sliced on the diagonal into ½ inch thick slices
Olive oil from Spain
12 thinly sliced pieces Serrano Ham
12 thinly sliced pieces Manchego cheese
Whole grain mustard
Preheat grill. Grush each slice of bread on one side with olive oil and grill, oil-side down until lightly golden brown… Turn over and divide cheese among bread slices. Top each slice of cheese with the slices of ham and grill until the cheese begins to melt. Serve with mustard.
