An intoxicating aroma will fill your home as this traditional Spanish bread finishes baking in your oven. When ready, a golden brown, crunchy crust seals in the fluffy interior. Hear the crackle as you break into the roll and release pockets of aromatic steam that will make your mouth water. Enjoy a traditional Spanish bocadillo sandwich by drizzling olive oil onto the bread and adding slices of jamón or Manchego cheese.
Not all bread is created equal. This specimen, from a traditional, family-owned bakery in Galicia, is unmatched in its aroma, texture and flavor. The thin crust is just crunchy enough to add texture without being tough or messy. The inside is light with large air pockets that capture the fragrance of baked bread and create perfect reservoirs for holding accompanying oil or spreads.
Bocadillo sandwiches are popular in much of Spain and ubiquitous in Galicia. If you have visited the city or made the historic pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela to admire the architecture or feed your spirituality, you will remember this bread that accompanies many of their regional specialties. If not, close your eyes and inhale as you bite into these bocadillo rolls and let the flavor guide your imagination there.
