Pa amb oli and Butifarrón from Mallorca

This simply consists of a slice of toasted bread with olive oil to which we add one or more slices (to our taste) of Mallorcan butifarrón. Of course, the sobrassada is added to the base. Ramaders Agrupats is a Mallorcan company that produces a natural butifarrón, of great quality and at a good price.


Sobrasada and Mallorcan cheese canapes

One of the most popular products on the islands, along with sobrassada, is Mallorcan cheese. Traditionally, children in schools have tasted the famous sobrasada and cheese sandwich.
Like the previous one, it is a very simple recipe: bread on which you spread sobrassada and accompany it with a good wedge or slice of the Mallorcan cheese you like best. All Mallorcan sausages have a long gastronomic tradition on the islands.

This is also a very common dish in Balearic gastronomy. The main ingredient, sobrasada, is used to season a traditional lasagne.
