Jambon Beurre Sandwich

This classic French Baguette Sandwich, also known as a Jambon Beurre Sandwich is such a nice departure from a classic deli sandwich. Our version is layered on a crusty French baguette with salty prosciutto, an easy herbed butter, creamy brie, and peppery arugula. Effortlessly elegant, and most importantly, so delicious.
