  • 4 slices crusty white bread, around 1cm thick
  • olive oil
  • 4 padron peppers
  • salt
  • 1-2 slices jamón


  • Preheat your oven to 200C.
  • Brush both sides of each slice of bread with olive oil, and place on a baking tray. Cook for 8-10 minutes, until golden.
  • Meanwhile, heat a tbsp of olive oil in a pan. Once hot, add the whole padron peppers and cook for 4-5 minutes, turning regularly, until the skin is blistered. Remove onto a plate lined with kitchen paper, blot dry and sprinkle with salt.
  • Once the bread is cooked, top each with a suitably sized piece of jamón, followed by a whole padron pepper. Serve.
