Mozzarella Sandwiches with Tomato Jam

Holaaaaaa!

I love cheese! Don´t you?  When I was in Spain, sometimes I would eat different kinds of cheese tapas. I would add a little bit of tomato jam to the tapas and it was out of this world. Yesterday, I got the craving for cheese and tomato jam. But, I didn’t have any jam in my fridge. What did I do? I made my own! So easy and so tasty. Trust me, you’ll want to try it.

I had some different varieties of Manchego cheese and I also had some mozzarella that I wanted to use up. I thought, “what can I do …?” I remembered just once I had this delicious little mozzarella sandwich.  So, I got into the kitchen and I recreated it. I call them Mozzarella Mini Sandwiches. Tapa style.  It’s yummy.

Ingredients for the mozzarella mini sandwiches ; 

– Mozzarella

– White bread or any kind of soft bread (I used honey oat bread).

– Bread crumbs

– Egg

– 2 cups vegetable or canola oil

Cut the bread into shapes. I cut it in squares, using my ravioli stamp. Slice the mozzarella into the same shape as the bread.

Make the sandwich. Beat the egg and place the sandwich into the egg and then into the bread crumbs. Fry it for a few minutes on both sides until it’s brown.

Ingredients for the tomato jam (makes  about 1/2 pint):

–  2 large, ripe tomatoes (use as many as you want)

– 1 cup sugar

– 1/2 fresh lemon juice

Place the tomatoes in a boiling pot for a few minutes. Place them immediately into a cold water bath and then peel them.

Place them into a blender for a minute.

In a sauce pan, combine the sugar, lemon juice and tomatoes that were already blended. Stir on a low to medium heat for 10 minutes. Place a lid on the sauce pan and leave it on a low heat for 35- 45 minutes. Let it cool down and then place into a jar.

You can make as much as you want and store it if you want to make more than 1 jar. I would recommend to place the jam into the jars, put the lids on and place the jars into a pot with 1inch of hot water for 20 minutes. The jam will last longer in the refrigerator. Otherwise is good for a few weeks.

Easy, cheap and tasty! Hope you enjoy it 🙂

BON PROFIT!

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at joyofspanishcooking@gmail.com Bon profit!
