Pan Bagnat

I love a tasty sandwich on good bread. This is yet another sandwich that can be made on the easy baguette and is a good alternative to the traditional tuna sandwich.

Pan Bagnat
from mediterrasian.com

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
½ clove garlic—minced (crushed)
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 medium-sized baguette
6 oz (180g) can tuna in olive oil—drained and broken into chunks
¼ green pepper (capsicum)—diced
1 tomato—sliced
2 eggs—hard-boiled, peeled and sliced
10 half rings of red onion
6 pitted black olives—sliced

Place the oil, vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper in a jar with screw top lid and shake until well combined. Cut the baguette in half lengthways and remove some of the soft bread from the center of each half to hollow out a little. Arrange the tuna, green pepper, tomato, eggs, onion and olives on the bottom half then drizzle with the dressing. Top with the other baguette half and wrap tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to develop. Bring to room temperature before cutting in half to serve.

Did you make your bread for this recipe? The loaf in the picture sure looks good.

Of course I made it! It's the baguette recipe from Artisan Bread.

That doesn't look like my Artisan baguette at all! Is that from the wheat recipe?

No, not wheat. See the link in the post to the exact recipe I used.
