Author Notes

My favorite street food when I visit Paris is by far the Jambon-Beurre. French style ham, good butter, gruyere cheese, accented by a tiny bit of dijon - all on a crusty baguette. What more could you want! This sandwich can be made quite a bit ahead of time and travels well. —meganvt01

  • Serves 2
  • 1 French baguette
  • 1/3 pound French ham, sliced thinly
  • 2 ounces aged gruyere - thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons European butter
In This Recipe
  1. Slice the baguette lengthwise.
  2. Spread the softened butter on one side of the baguette. Spread the mustard on the other side (should be very thin).
  3. Add the sliced ham gruyere. Top with the other slice of baguette. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap. This sandwich can sit for up to a day - and even improve - in the refrigerator.
