French "Summer Sandwich": Pan Bagnat

Recommended Posts

This looks wonderful, and was recommended by a friend.

 

It definitely sounds-like-Summer!!:

 

PAN BAGNAT

 

"Great bread makes all the difference in this simply delicious recipe from southern France; it's name (pan ban-YAH) means soaked bread. Get the crustiest loaf you can find, ideally a long slim French baguette." (I'm thinking, use the Bran bread recipe and shape into long slim loaves.) -WW New Complete Cookbook

 

4 servings

 

2 very ripe tomatoes, peeled (I won't peel them)

1 8 oz. loaf day-old French or Italian bread, halved lengthwise

1/3 C. shredded part skim mozzarella cheese

1/4 C. finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

2 scallions, thinly sliced

2 TBS. white wine vinegar (I'd use balsamic)

2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil

Freshly ground pepper, to taste

 

Halve each tomato horizontally; with a spoon, scoop out and discard the seeds and pulp. Dice the tomato shells.

 

Pull out the soft insides of the bread and tear into pea-sized pieces. Transfer to a medium bowl; stir in the tomatoes, cheese, parsley, scallions, vinegar, oil and pepper.

 

Fill the bread loaf with the tomato mixture; close the bread and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight; just before serving, cut into 4 sandwiches.

It turned out great! I made a few modifications. Whole wheat baguette.

 

No cheese (we're trying a plant-based diet). I thought it would be pretty weird...but DH GOBBLED it up. It really was good! :bcb_bigsm
