  • Yield: 2 1x


There’s no such thing as THE Spanish Toastie. However, there is such a thing like Spanish ingredients on a toastie! 



  • 100 grams Manchego
  • 100 grams Chorizo (slices) 
  • 2 tbsp of orange jam or chutney
  • 4 slices of olive bread
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil

Alternatively, you can use a spicy olive tapenade instead of the orange chutney: 

  • 50 grams of green olives (with chili and cayenne pepper to taste)


  1. Cut the manchego cheese in slices and cut off the rind (the hard bit).
  2. Assemble the toastie starting with the cheese, then place the chorizo on top and finally add the marmalade/jam. 
  3. Close the toastie. 
  4. Drizzle some olive oil on the grill (and on the top layer of the bread).
  5. Put the toastie in the middle of the preheated grill. 
  6. Grill until crispy or right until the cheese starts to melt. 


  • If you’re using the spicy olives instead of the orange chutney, turn them into a quick tapenade, by cutting the olives really small. If desired, add some chili and/or cayenne pepper and an extra dash of olive oil. 
  • TIP: Place the tapenade at the bottom of the toastie and the cheese and chorizo on top of it.
