Pan Bagnat

Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.
Every 6 months we have to make a drive to my doctor in Chicago for my bi-yearly checkups. It's never an appointment I look forward to, but Jason always tries to put a happy spin on the trip by finding new restaurants that we can try that we don't have here at home. For some reason he thinks I'm on a French cuisine kick lately, (probably because I've been reminiscing a lot on the amazing chaussons aux pommes we had in Paris a few years back) and everywhere we go now he's yelping French restaurants in the area. He did manage to find a little French cafe in Chicago that we haven't been to yet (Maison Parisienne), and it was so good that we've been making our own versions of their L'avocat and Croque-Monsieur sandwiches at home for the last few weeks. I did go a little overboard on purchasing baguettes this week and decided I'd branch out a little and try a new French inspired sandwich for a little more variety to our lunches. Golden Blossom Honey had this Pan Bagnat recipe that looked tempting, so I gave it a whirl. 
What I liked about this recipe is how versatile it can be. Carnivore? No problem. Want a vegetarian version? Easy, peasy. Don't want the tuna the recipe calls for? Shredded chicken or turkey would be an easy substitute. For our sandwiches, I left all of the meat off and Jason, a man who always prefers meat on his sandwiches, had zero complaints. His review: "This sandwich is good. And I don't mean like just good. I mean like this is deli shop good. One that needs to be on a restaurant menu." And there you have it folks. If it passed Jason's taste test with flying colors, I'm sure it will pass yours as well.

What kind of cuisine do you usually look for when you're out of town traveling? 


  1. The spelling of that really confused me; like why isn’t it ‘pain’ (French for bread)? I googled it and I guess that’s just the way it’s spelled! It looks yummy. French food is very hard to find anymore, which wasn’t the case in the ‘80’s-90’s. I can’t think of any cuisine we look for while traveling, though we do seek out wineries and breweries.

  2. Looks lovely and you did a nice setting with that gorgeous wooden tray, I'm surprised you are not using any of your cutlery and dishes in the photoshoots. One wouldn't even know you have a wooden cutlery business, missy, just judging by the photos in your posts lol Throw them in sometimes. That being said I've never had me an artichoke and I don't think I feel sorry about it LOL

  3. That is great when you can find a spot that makes you want to redo it at home. Even better when it passes the taste test at home too.

  4. Gracias por la reseƱa. Te mando un beso.

  5. I was trying to think of what to make for dinner tonight. Something fast and easy since we've been at the bball court all day and I'm tired. I have all of these things in the kitch. Gracias, amiga. :)

  6. So delicious. Regine
