Saucisson Beurre Baguette Sandwich

Hello, Welcome to Djalali Cooks! I mentioned in My Paris Trip recap that while I had many delicious and interesting French dishes in Paris, my favorite was the simple Saucisson Beurre Baguette Sandwich. Beth and I picked up a couple sandwiches on our way home from a long day of walking, anticipating we’d like something to snack on later in the evening. Snacking on this sandwich, sipping a glass of wine, with the sounds of the city outside our second floor window was just perfect! Let me show how to make a Saucisson Beurre Baguette Sandwich.

This is a simple sandwich: baguette, salted butter, salami and cornichons. You can replicate this sandwich at home pretty easily. Seeking out a proper French baguette from your local independent bakery will be your best bet. But if you can’t do that, a store-bought baguette will work out. We can put the baguette in a 375 degree F oven for a few minutes to crisp up the crust.

Then we have good quality French or European style salted butter, thinly sliced salami and cornichons or gherkins.

Slice the baguette in half lengthwise. Spread butter on the bottom half of the baguette. Then lay the salami (or saucisson) slices on top of the butter. Don’t use too many slices, just enough to cover the bottom half of the bread in a single layer, with the slices slightly overlapping. I folded each slice of salami.

Then, just place several cornichons on top of the salami.

Saucisson Beurre Baguette Sandwich

Is this the easiest French recipe? Maybe…it’s definitely quick! Sometimes it’s the simplest things that have the biggest impact. Perhaps because it’s easier to recall the flavors, and the moments we enjoyed those flavors, when the thing is simple. Know what I mean?

2

Spread butter on the bottom half of the baguette. Then lay the salami (or saucisson) slices on top of the butter. Don't use too many slices, just enough to cover the bottom half of the bread in a single layer, with the slices slightly overlapping. I folded each slice of salami.

Then, just place several cornichons on top of the salami.

Top with the top half of the baguette and that's it!

If you're using a day old baguette, first wrap the baguette in aluminum foil and bake for 5-10 until the baguette is soft. Then remove the foil and bake the baguette until the crust is crisp, about 5-10 more minutes

      Hi Barbara, So true – we never took a honeymoon, so I think we are adding Paris to the itinerary! You’re right about the baguette, I think an independent, local bakery is my best option. Thanks for stopping by today! xo Kelly
