Jamon Serrano and Brie Bruschetta

Jamon Serrano and Brie Bruschetta. Made of high quality jamon serrano

I  believe I was 10 years old when I had my first taste of spanish ham. My aunt just came from Spain with my uncle and she took home many spanish goodies for pasalubong to relatives. That includes manchego cheese, wine, chocolates, and olive oil. I heard her talking about how good spanish hams are and how she couldn’t bring home some because it wasn’t allowed. I heard her talk about jamon iberico , jamon serrano, bellota ham, and pata negra.

The curiosity of my young foodie self was piqued. I already love ham but hearing it in spanish as jamon somehow makes it more delicious…. and interesting! I told my aunt how I wish I could try those jamons she was able to try.

The very next day, she took me to the local deli and we bought iberico ham and jamon serrano.

She arranged it in a plate just like spanish tapas along with the manchego cheese and some olives. Then she poured some wine for the adults. I was surprised that there was no need to cook it and I remember making a sandwich out of the jamon and the manchego cheese. Oh, and how I loved every single bite of it!

Today, I am rekindling my love for spanish ham with this Jamon Serrano and Brie Bruschetta. I already have a 9 year old little foodie at home and it’s about time I introduce her to spanish ham and all the delicious things she could do with it. I told her that you can get spanish hams here at the local deli but the best iberico ham is produced in Spain and can be purchased at Ibergour. I could tell she was excited to learn more as well as try what I made.

The combination of flavors in this bruschetta is amazing — sweet, salty, aromatic, creamy, tart, fruity — everything is in there!

Jamon Serrano and Brie Bruschetta

  • Author: Peachy Adarne

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 french baguette, slicced diagonally about 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 pack of jamon serrano, about 6 slices
  • 1 round of brie
  • 1 fresh peach, sliced
  • fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar

Instructions

  1. Make the Balsamic Glaze: by combining the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar in a heavy-bottom saucepan over low heat. Simmer while stirring frequently, until vinegar is thickened or the back of a spoon is coated. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Sauce will thicken as it cools.
  2. To Make The Bruschetta, toast each baguette in the oven toaster. Spread a thin layer of the fig jam.
  3. Layer the sliced brie, sliced peaches, serrano ham, and a piece of fresh basil on top.
  4. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and enjoy.

  1. Oh that sounds so good I Love bruschetta and this sounds like a nice start to any meal.

  2. Don’t you just love Brie, I often just spread it on a cracker and drizzle some balsamic vinegar over it. Your way sounds good too. This is certainly going to be on my list the next time my writers group is here.

  3. This would be a delicious appetizer to try. I will have to get the ingredients I need to make some on the weekend. I am sure it will be a hit.

  4. Ohh, I will be saving this so I can make it on my own. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I am glad many people share their own, we learn from people like you. Will definitely snap a photo of this when I already make my version.

  5. I love jamon serrano and manchego cheese as well. They go really good together, with a little bit of olive oil on top. I never tried it with brie though, but it sounds delicious, especially with the balsamic on top.

  6. This looks delicious. Making this dish would make me look pretty impressive. I can’t even begin to imagine the all the sweet and salty tastes on that crunchy bruschetta!

  7. Looks amazing!! I do love Brie. And the whole thing looks just to die for. I’m lucky enough not to do holiday entertaining, but I may have to whip up a plate for myself. 🙂

  8. This is something that I will be trying to make in the near future. I just love the look at it. And the beautiful combination of flavors just makes my mouth water.
