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.
