Pan con Tomate Recipe (Toasted bread with tomato, olive oil, and ham)

Pan con Tomate, jamón y aceite, or toasted bread with tomato, olive oil, and ham is another popular Spanish breakfast item.

All you have to do is cut the tomatoes in half and grate them into a bowl. Discard the stem and skins.

Add around one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of sea salt and stir everything.

Take a clove of raw garlic and rub it on the toasted bread. Afterward, spoon the tomato mixture onto the bread.

I like to top it with Spanish Serrano ham, but you can also use avocado or cheese.
