Tartine Three Ways

We hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving! If you’re like most, you’ve had many of the oh-so-sought-after turkey sandwich – I know that I did. But now I’m ready for some lighter fare that is just as satisfying. If you’re entertaining this weekend, or just relaxing by the fire after a long day of picking out the perfect Christmas tree, this is a sandwich you’ll want to whip up. Back in October, we featured the Tartine (an open-faced fancy sandwich), and are now bringing it back SuperSized! We use the whole baguette here to feed a crowd. Delicious and easy, it’s a real showstopper when presented. Enjoy!
