Classic Parisian Jambon-Beurre Sandwich Recipe

On the Paris endangered eats list is the Jambon-Beurre sandwich. Nothing more than an amazing baguette (preferably the skinny ficelle) topped with slightly salted French butter and spiced Parisian ham (aka jambon de Paris), it the simplest combo but a good version of it is harder and harder to find.

Caractère de Cochon is out to right that wrong. We discovered them when Aida was filming the Paris episode of #OffMenu and it was love at first bite. It’s a tiny shop next one of my favorite Paris markets, the Marché des Enfants Rouges, and they do the Classic Parisian Jambon-Beurre Sandwich recipe, just right. It’s so simple to make that it really doesn’t require a recipe.

But it does require that you get the best ingredients (preferably an epic ficelle, some demi-sel butter, and authentic Jambon de Paris) you can find! Make it yourself or just make sure to visit next time you travel to France!

Okay, now gstock up on all your cooking essentials then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!

  • High-quality European butter salted to your liking, at room temperature
  • Jambon de Paris or other high-quality ham, sliced paper thin
