a breakfast sandwich.

1 October 2012

This sandwich idea came from my friend Dave's delicious looking bagel-sandwich he was eating during a class the other day. I knew immediately I needed to kind of- sort of re-create my own. It came out pretty darn good, especially the shallot-garlic cream cheese. The veggies I picked up from the farmer's market & the bread from the Homestead Bakery. For Jediah's sandwich I added a few slices of summer sausage. Simple & delish.

  1. In the a 350 degree oven, toast the baguette for about 3-4 minutes.
