Author Notes

My mother is responsible for turning me from a picky eater into an adventurous foodie. She made this for me once as a simple snack with radishes from her garden and farm fresh butter - it was a food epiphany for me. Radishes that fresh taste so peppery - the whole thing was heaven. Now I make it all the time. I know it's not even really a recipe...but it's so good that I don't really care. —Erin Jeanne McDowell

What You'll Need
  • 1 baguette, thinly sliced
  • sweet cream butter, as needed
  • 1 bunch radishes, thinly sliced
  • fleur de sel, as needed
  1. Spread the baguette with a thin layer of butter, and layer with several radish slices. Sprinkle the whole thing generously with fleur de sel and serve.

I always have three kinds of hot sauce in my purse. I have a soft spot for making people their favorite dessert, especially if it's wrapped in a pastry crust. My newest cookbook, Savory Baking, came out in Fall of 2022 - is full of recipes to translate a love of baking into recipes for breakfast, dinner, and everything in between!

This is my favorite way to eat radishes, especially french breakfast radishes.

Me too! Though I'll take pretty much any excuse to eat butter.
