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 :)
