D'Artagnan chef bio | Yield: Makes 4 sandwiches
This is less of a recipe and more of a tasty suggestion. If you’ve been to Paris, you’ve no doubt had a simple lunch of jambon-beurre. This is our version using authentic French-style bistro ham, black truffle butter, and creamy Camembert (for extra credit).
- 1 fresh baguette (about 24 inches long)
- 8 tablespoons Black Truffle Butter, at room temp
- 8 ounces Berkshire Pork Bistro Ham, thinly sliced
- 4 ounces Brie or Camembert, in ¼-inch slices
- Cornichons, for serving (optional)
- Cut the baguette in half lengthwise so you have one large open sandwich. Generously spread each cut side with truffle butter. Layer ham evenly over the baguette then top with cheese. Close the sandwich then cut into 4 equal lengths. Serve with cornichons, if desired.
Sandwich Tips: Use the freshest baguette you can find. You can also use thinly sliced Gruyere if you prefer, or omit the cheese entirely. This sandwich is also wonderful on the thinner ficelle style bread.
