This is a very good sandwich, perfect for a summer picnic or festive lunch. I use Brie here, but a nice Camembert or other soft-rind cheese would do nicely as well. The sandwich is flavored with a basic herb-garlic-and olive oil mixture, almost like a simplified Moroccan Chermula without too many spices and lemon juice (although a traditional Chermula with cilantro, garlic, spices, lemon juice and olive oil would probably also do wonders here.)

The creamy cheese goes so well with the crispy baguette and the flavorful basil and garlic. The trick is to put a lot of your herb mix on the bread and preferably even let the sandwich rest a little before eating. This is definitely one of my favorite baguette sandwiches that is even better when enjoyed in a nice scenic setting...

  • Baguette
  • Basil (about 1 cup)
  • Garlic, pressed (2-4 cloves)
  • Olive oil (3-4 tbsp)
  • Nice chunk of Brie
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • Salami
  • Salt & Pepper

Chop the basil quite finely, mix with the garlic and the oil. Cut the baguette lengthwise and spread generously on the bread. Put salami on one side, follow with tomato slices and top with Brie slices. Salt & pepper. Place the remaining basil-covered bread on the cheese and cut into individual pieces. Optionally, wrap in foil or parchment paper and let rest (or eat right away).
