Back to School: Pan Bagnat

pan bagnat: tuna sandwich

It's time to think about school lunch again (and -- as always -- the quest for a civilized office lunch marches on). Lucky for us, our friends at Food Network have asked the minds behind our favorite food sites to pool their best ideas for lunches that will stand up to a trek in a brown bag (or one of these).

We're bringing to the table the best tuna sandwich we know: Pan Bagnat: Le French Tuna Salad Sandwich by Waverly. This recipe won our contest for Your Best Brown Bag Lunch and it was well-deserved -- it's a colorful, crunchy Nicoise salad packed between oil-bathed slabs of French bread.

Just packed Waverly's Pan Bagnat in my seven-year-old daughter's lunch today. So glad to see this featured here. It is a great sandwich -- a real family favorite.
