I went to Spain and discovered tostas.  It's a mystery to me because it has the qualities of both a quick bread and a yeast bread as well as a biscuit.  Can anyone point my to a recipe?  It's a simple staple in Spain but do you think that I can find it anywhere on the internet?  Any Spanish bakers out there that might be willing to share their recipe?

Thank you!

David has a great one here in TLF, and googling will reveal several recipes.

If it is indeed tostas, I could not find anything either.

tostada being 'toasted'.

A tosta is just a slice of toasted bread, usually with some savoury items on it.

There are a few recipes here (in Spanish):

The bread used is usually a white yeasted bread, nothing special.

Another thing that may be called tosta is this Swedish bread:

Where did you find your tostas? Spain is not a very big country, but things can change a lot depending on where you are.

Hi la masa,

Thanks for this clarification. This question seems to appear twice and I've posted on the other thread suggesting 'tosta' is like 'tostada' but saying I am open to correction. Glad I was on the right lines!

Kind regards, Daisy_A
