stephmodo: Baguette Sandwich

Baguette Sandwich

• 17 September 2009

Something always on my mind over here is the possibility of replication back home...without the luxury of a French grocery store nearby. I become especially excited to discover a yummy lunch that is simple to create when I just can't handle pb&j anymore.

The French make an excellent tuna sandwich and from what I've gathered by multiple "tastings", this is what you'll need to recreate their version:

* crusty baguette (in SLC it's Crumb Bros.; in SF it's Bay Bread)
* best quality tuna (get the highest quality version in water, not oil)
* add some mayo and a little bit of Dijon mustard
* butter lettuce
* thinly sliced tomato

...and for the ultimate in authenticity, add chunks of boiled egg--a delicious addition. This sandwich is tasty and also packed with protein for that extra boost we all need right around lunch time :)


  1. That sounds delicious! I never would have thought of putting eggs in with tuna. Can't wait to try it!

  2. Looks absolutely delicious! Do you make your own bread?

  3. I want you to know that I appreciate your blog and your French adventures. I feel like a voyeur because I never leave a comment of thanks. I too love France and can't wait to get back. I have enjoyed your renovation because isn't it romantic when you watch someone else do the work?

    When I am especially tired or stressed, I come to your blog for a deep breath. I think that it is a kind of escape to watch the progress of the cottage and to always see the strawberries in your food pictures--and to taste vicariously une baguette. I appreciate that immensely. Know that your hard work, your blog dedication, family dedication, innovation is bringing joy to me.
    Au revoir!

  4. Heavens no I don't make my own bread but I admire people who do :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop a line. I really appreciate it!
