Prosciutto and Brie on Baguette

Prosciutto and Brie on Baguette | Magnolia Days

It’s sandwich time! That statement is true at some point almost every day for me. I usually eat one for lunch. Sometimes I’ll make them for dinner. My usual one is ham, turkey, and cheese with a boatload of toppings. Every now and then I’ll make a turkey reuben when I have leftovers from roasting a turkey. When I want a special sandwich, one that stands out from the rest, I’ll make prosciutto and brie on baguette. Oh la la!! The ultimate one to go with wine.

Prosciutto and brie on baguette is a simple sandwich. I make it a bit more decadent by adding butter to it. I discovered that addition while on one on my trips to California wine country. This little cafe on the Sonoma square had it on the menu. As soon as I took a bite of that sandwich, I knew it was how I had to make mine from then on. It’s funny how it took a trip across the country to find another great use for butter. You know I like butter a whole lot.

Brie, grilled lemon chicken and arugula with olive oil on baguette or ciabatta, heaven! Here we eat ham and cheese sandwiches on french bread all the time. I love that you add butter!

I will have to try your brie and chicken sandwich. Sounds really good. The butter makes all the difference to me.

The addition of butter is such a European thing. In Portugal, we use butter instead of mayo or mustard. I am totally craving this sandwich now!

Very true about Europeans using butter more than mayo. I didn't see mayo on sandwiches when I was in Germany.
