Mallorca is a sweet, fluffy and buttery Puerto Rican bread. It can be compared to a traditional sweet roll. They are quite easy to make compared to other breads, but here you can find them already baked at any local bakery. I usually buy them at Panaderia Pan Pepin. They can be eaten on its own with powdered sugar and a cup of coffee, or they can be made into a delicious sweet and salty sandwich.
1 slice of American cheese (or preferred cheese)
1 slice of cooked ham
2 tablespoon of olive oil
Non-stick cooking spray
Salt and pepper to taste
In small sauté pan fry the egg in olive oil, cook until it has reached your desire term. (I like my yolk soft but not runny for the sandwich). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cut the Mallorca in half. Place the ham, cheese, and egg and close.
Spray a griddle or panini press with non-stick cooking spray and toast until cheese has melted and Mallorca is just lightly golden brown.
Top with powder sugar and serve immediately.

- If you don’t have a panini press or griddle you can make in a sauté pan just as you would a grill cheese.
- I don’t had butter to my Mallorca because I feel it is not needed, the bread is already butter enough, but feel free to do so!
