Montaditos Recipe 

Louis Armstrong ToastMontaditos are any tapa "mounted" on a piece of bread or in a tiny sandwich. There are hundreds of different ones and we're going to show you our own favorite:
Louis Armstrong Toast
Legend has it that it was invented by the chef of the famous "Grill Room" restaurant in the Los Monteros hotel near Marbella on Spain's Costa del Sol.
The great Sachmo, Louis Armstrong, was feeling peckish in the middle of the afternoon (as you do!) and asked for a snack to keep the hunger pangs at bay.
This is what the chef came up with, and Louis loved it, and became his favourite snack. It's has been on the menu ever since. With so few ingredients this is one montadito that's quick and easy to make and absolutely delicious.
You can also serve it as a simple starter...it always goes down well!
Eat well - feel full and satisfied and lose those excess pounds without undue effort.
