This is how we do: we don’t need much, we need it to look great. So the ingredients for this recipe are quite basic (round small bread, Iberian ham –well it doesn’t have to be Iberian, but a nice one–, an egg and some cheese to spread over it), but the result is really good.

It also looks really good but not so complicated! You just need tortillas for the outside and chicken breasts, lettuce, cheese and Caesar sauce for putting inside. For the chicken: you can make it grilled or fried.

The fancy look: sprinkle the croissants with powdered sugar.
