Ingredients

  • 2 long french baguettes any kind or size you like
  • 1/2 pound prosciutto
  • 10-15 slices fresh mozzarella or provolone cheese or fontina
  • 1/2 cup pistou recipe here
  • fresh tomato slices
  • salt and pepper for seasoning

Instructions

  • Slice french bread lengthwise
  • Remove some of the inside bread (optional). I like less bread.
  • Layer meat, cheese, tomato. Add pistou.
  • If you don't have pistou, layer chopped basil (chopped put on at the very last minute before serving) with drizzled olive oil. Feel free to add a smattering of oregano or Italian seasoning.
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Cut cross wise into two-three inch pieces.

Notes

I also like to make French inspired ham and cheese, using cold butter, mustard, ham and cheese. You can however, mix a grainy dijon mustard with mayonnaise for an easy sandwich spread. Fill with arugula or mache as your green.
If you don't have pesto, layer chopped basil (chopped put on at the very last minute before serving) with drizzled olive oil. Feel free to add a smattering of oregano or Italian seasoning.
