Made as part of tapas for a dinner party, really simple yet delicious. Quite garlic-y, but not overpoweringly so. Used parma ham, as that's all I could get, but worked fine.

healthy food, here first toast the sliced of bread, after pass garlic in the toasted bread, and grate the tomatoes passing strainer just to take pulp of tomatoe, and not the water. Put on the top the spanish ham. The secret is election a good tomatoe (normally it´s easy to find in summer, is the season, also you can find all year), and spanish ham, possibly "iberian ham", do you can apreciatte foot it´s black no white.

This is my go to recipe when i need to feed a crowd. It's perfect as a starter for an informal summer get together. It's delicious and easy. I like it topped with parmesan cheese.

first of all, it is not Spanish tomato bread but Catalan (most spaniards don't eat bread like that, catalans do all the time). Its name is PA AMB TOMÀQUET.
Secondly, Pa amb tomàquet is prepared by grating half a tomato into the bread firstly toasted. Finally, you just add olive oil and salt, no pepper in it!
You can enjoy Pa amb tomàquet with any cheese, ham, Spanish omelet...

These were delicious - much to my surprise - didn't expect so much from a bit of bread, a few tomatoes and some ham. Couldn't get any Serrano Ham so used some other kind and it was lovely.

These are soooo tasty, any time of the year they will take you back to warm summer nights with a cold glass of wine.

Made these for as part of a tapas evening, they were the first things to go - I also grated my tomatoes, which I think made the bread more moist - will do these again and again.

Living in Spain we eat this regularly. I cut the tomatoes in half and grate them before adding seasoning and olive oil. Don't always add garlic as not all my friends enjoy it as I do.

ohhhh!! the "pa amb tomàquet" isn't is not so! The tomato is rubbed on the bread until it catches the flavor and color! then seasoned with olive oil and salt...(this is the most famous snack of Catalans!)

Lovely. I used too much oil as my tomatoes were smaller than I think they were supposed to be but still tasted amazing.
