Rye bread toasts with pesto and ham flakes, recipe for a luxury appetizer

How delicious are the snacks before eating. Many times I almost enjoy the appetizer more than the food itself, and especially when I can calmly prepare something as delicious as today's recipe. And is that these toasts of rye bread with pesto and slices of ham are a real delicacy.

Since I had artisan rye bread that I had bought when I attended Dan Lepard's bread course at The Loaf in a Box, I just had to make a good pesto, buy a good Iberian ham and toast the bread. A luxury aperitif in less than ten minutes, as you will see now.


For 2 persons
  • Rye bread 2 slices
  • Serrano ham 100 g
  • Basil a bunch
  • Garlic clove 1
  • Pinions 100 g
  • Parmesan 100 g
  • Extra virgin olive oil 100 ml

How To Make Rye Bread Toast With Pesto And Ham Flakes

Difficulty: Easy
  • Total time 5m
  • Elaboration 5m

To prepare the pesto we will need a glass blender or a kitchen machine, in which we will put the pine nuts, the garlic clove, the extra virgin olive oil, the Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and the basil. After processing it until a thick texture is left, we correct it by adding more olive oil, if necessary. After preparing these toasts, we will have enough left over pesto sauce, which we can use in other pasta recipes, for pizzas or for other appetizers.

We cut a few slices of rye bread and lightly toast them. If you do not want to use rye bread, you can use any homemade or artisan bread that you like, with dense crumbs being preferable so that they hold the pesto sauce and the ham that we are going to place on top.

Once the bread is toasted, we spread one or two teaspoons of pesto on top, and cut the Iberian ham into small slices, to facilitate its distribution on the bread. It is preferable that the ham is cut into very thin slices, because that way we can put more ham slices without exceeding the total amount.

With what to accompany the toasts of rye bread with pesto and slices of ham

These rye bread toast with pesto and ham slices are delicious freshly made, when the rye bread is still warm from the toaster, which makes it easier for the pesto sauce to soak into the bread well and increase the intensity of the flavor of the bread. Parmesan. With a wine of your liking, you will not need more to start a special weekend.
