Currently, we live about 20 to 30 minutes from my husband’s work. It’s not the worst of commutes, but with gas prices what they are, we often consider moving closer. However, we live less than five minutes from an authentic French bakery. It’s a regular stop on our weekend jaunts.
He commented recently that it was almost worth the commute to live near the bakery. Yes, yes, it is.
Usually we clean them out of baguettes on a weekend day, usually buying four batons to bring home and make sandwiches with. And snack on. And maybe have petit dejeuner if we hit the boulangerie early enough in the morning.
But, baguette sandwiches are a favorite.
And one of my favorite sandwiches is a mix of cultures, much like my home state of California. French baguette, California avocado, turkey breast, and a chipotle mayonnaise. Throw in some tomato and sweet onion for good measure. So good!
I was craving it Monday morning, but alas, that’s the morning the bakery opens late. I would have seriously eaten this sandwich for breakfast.
Chipotle Turkey Baguettes
- 1/2 cup chipotle mayo
- 2 French baguette halved crosswise and split open
- 8 oz deli sliced turkey breast
- 1/2 sweet onion sliced
- 4 lettuce leaves
- Spread the chipotle mayonnaise on the top of each baguette half.
- On the bottom of each baguette half, layer the turkey, tomato, onions, and lettuce. Place the top of the baguette on each sandwich.
