We extend two slices of ham, slightly overlapping, and place a slice of cheese on top. We roll tightly and ensuring that cheese does not stand out. If we buy rectangular slices of ham, we use only one for each flamenquin.

We pass each roll for flour, beaten egg and breadcrumbs, covering the entire surface well and, above all, the ends so that the cheese does not come out when frying. We heat abundant olive oil in a pan and fry the flamingos. We turn to brown everywhere. Let drain on absorbent paper to remove excess fat before serving.
