For this Spanish classic, pan con tomate, grilling the bread gives it a hard outer crust that acts almost like a cheese grater when you scrape the tomato across its surface. Source: EatingWell Magazine, June 2020

  • Brush or drizzle both sides of bread with 2 tablespoons oil. Grill the bread, flipping occasionally, until both sides are well toasted, 2 to 6 minutes total.

  • Rub one side of each piece of toast with garlic, then rub each piece with two tomato halves, squeezing so all the juice and pulp is released into the toast. (You should be left with just the skin.) Drape the toasts with serrano ham (or prosciutto), drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and sprinkle with pepper, if desired.
