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.

Let’s Hit the Road!

This sandwich is hitting the road! Thanks to a program sponsored by Kraft Foods, this sandwich will be featured on the “Take a Sandwich Road Trip with Kraft Foods!” – on July 18th at Outstandwich.com.

Good Cheap Eats gets the opportunity to submit one recipe (this one) as well as one reader’s recipe. Not only will that one reader receive a $100 AmEx gift card, but their sandwich will also have a chance at being included in the Sandwich Road Trip.

    Sandwich looks very good :)..
    1/2 Mayo means, 1/2 cup mayo? (In the chipotle mayo section)

    • Jessica says

      Thanks for finding my typo. It’s 1/2 cup regular mayonnaise that you mix with the chipotle that you can find canned in the Mexican foods section.

  2. Where do we submit a sandwich entry? I don’t see it on the Outstandwich.com website.

    • Jessica says

      @Heather Ratliff, just above in the inlinkz. I get to submit one entry based on the linkies. Voting starts on Sunday.

    You had me at Chipotle mayonnaise. Looks great.

  4. I’ve got to know… what bakery are you talking about! Will be in San Diego next week for two weeks. Specifically in San Elijo Hills.

    How does the Avacado do when put in the fridge? I was thinking of making these for my husband and I to bring to work during the week. Will the avacado survive though, or get all nasty and black if I pre-make these the night before or the morning of?

    • Jessica says

      Yeah, the avocado would get yucky. If I’m sending hubby with an avo, I send it with him whole with a spoon. It’s good fat. 🙂

    Can you tell me the brand is and/or what the chipotles in adobo sauce should look like in the mexican aisle? Thanks… I want to try this.

  7. Loved these recipes. I will make the salad today. I hope it will still taste great if I eliminate the anchovy paste from the vinaigrette dressing. Great pictures too. Thanks for sharing. Debbie
