This simple Spanish Tomato Toast Recipe (Pan con Tomate), is a delightful combination of toasted bread and tomatoes which is a classic Catalana tapa served before the meal. It originated in Catalana, but can now be found all over Spain in every village and restaurant. Sometimes called Pan a la Catalana in other parts of Spain. Spanish Tomato Toast is one of the simplest and most widely eaten tapa dish in Spain.
Every single morning during our travels in Spain, we were served this Spanish Tomato Toast for breakfast along with our Cafe con Leche. I consider this as Spain’s National Breakfast. Check out What’s Cooking America’s Travels in Andalusia, Spain.
Spanish Tomato Toast can be eaten by itself, but is often topped with cheese, ham, or sausage and is eaten for breakfast or as an appetizer. As a appetizer, thick slabs of country-style bread are toasted over a wood fire until lightly golden. For breakfast, toasted baguette bread is used. The bread is rubbed with garlic, tomato halves or grated tomato pulp are smeared all over the toast, drizzled with Spanish extra-virgin olive oil, and sprinkled with coarse sea salt.
