There are so many great Spanish tapas, that it's easy to forget about the absolute easiest kind - montados, affectionately called montaditos. What are they? Simply a topping that "rides" on a piece of baguette - period. From cheese or Serrano ham to salt cod, anchovies or sun-dried tomatoes. The Spanish love montaditos. In fact, the popular chain in Spain called 100 Montaditos already has 225 branches in Spain, 9 in Miami, Florida and is planning to open 500 more in America by 2015!
If you are planning to entertain this Holiday season, include a few montaditos from our list, or make your entire party focused on them. The possibilities are endless for montaditos. Let your imagination run wild!
