This parma ham open sandwich recipe is inspired by my recent visit to Copenhagen. The open sandwich is very popular there, all the bars and pubs we have been to offer varies open sandwiches. My best memories of the trip always involving sitting under the sun, drinking a pint of cold beer while snacking on super delicious and refreshing open sandwiches. To bring me back to that relaxing holiday mood, I recreate the open sandwich over the weekend. It has slight Spanish, or Italian twist to it because it involved parma ham, one of my all time favorite!
If you are Spanish, this recipe will be very familiar to you. At least this is what my Spanish husband said. Oliver oil, jamón (very similar to parma ham) and bread combo is a very common snack/meal in Spain.

Ingredients for parma ham open sandwich
A few things that help
I recommend you to use baked hard bread rather than soft sandwiches bread. Oil olive will make the soft sandwich bread soggy.
Although you can use butter instead of olive oil, I do not recommend that. Just because it tastes less fresh with butter. Oliver oil has a special fresh taste to it, butter is softer and a lot creamier. Also, if you want the extra kick, add some freshly grounded pepper.
Here is a video version of what I just wrote above 🙂 Watch it if you have unlimited internet or wifi. The printer-able recipe is at the bottom of the post.
