Copycat Parisian Sandwich

While I was in D.C., we went to Brown Bag and had the Parisian sandwich.  It's an amazing panini style sandwich with tomatoes, basil, brie, and olive oil.  As soon as I tasted it, I knew that I had to make it when I got home!  Unfortunately, I don't have a panini press.  Instead, I made this sandwich using the broiler setting of our oven.

Per sandwich, you will need:
  • 1/2 French baguette
  • 2-3 slices of tomato
  • several leaves of basil
  • 3-4 slices of brie
  • a drizzle of olive oil
Preheat your oven to broil.  Then, simply cut the baguette down the middle to open it up.  Then, drizzle the olive oil on both sides of the bread.  Layer the tomatoes and basil on one side and the brie on the opposite side.  Then, simply pop in your oven until the cheese is melty (about 5-6 minutes).

We made one with provolone, too- you could use any cheese you want!

Once it's melty, just fold the sides back together, let cool a bit, and dive in!

    1. Instead of tomato and basil, you could pair the brie with caramelized onions and pear :)
