Eating My Way Through the Alphabet; Letter J

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Food for Sharing: Jambon de Bayonne Baguette! If you don’t have time to run by the local artisan bakery, consider this option. By using ingredients you may already have on hand from the local supermarket deli, this homemade version of a Parisian favorite can be done in minutes. It’s basically a ham and cheese sandwich stepped up a notch. 
JAMBON DE BAYONNE BAGUETTE 
Ingredients:

1 baguette, cut in half (serves 2)

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon Herbs de Provence 

1-2 Roma tomatoes, sliced

3 ounces Jambon de Bayonne, or aged prosciutto 

2 romaine lettuce leaves

2 slices espresso/lavender rubbed cheese

8 cornichon gherkins
Instructions:

Slice baguette lengthwise, without cutting all the way through to create a submarine sandwich. Spread a fine layer of Dijon mustard over each baguette half. In a small bowl, combine olive oil and herbs de Provence. Add slices tomatoes to coat, reserving olive oil mixture. Place one layer of tomatoes in each baguette. Next divide prosciutto, romaine lettuce, and gourmet cheese between baguette sandwiches. Top with cornichon gherkins. Drizzle with remaining herbed olive oil. Close and serve. Bon Appétit!
