French Food Friday - Pesto and Egg Baguette Sandwich


The forecast is for lots of sunshine this weekend so we plan to pack the picnic basket and head somewhere nice for a picnic.

This recipe is perfect as it is quick and easy to prepare and tastes delicious. It is one of my go to recipes and I was so happy when I found it here.

Pesto and Egg Baguette Sandwich


  • (6-inch) piece of French baguette
  • tablespoon 


  • tablespoon 


  • hard-boiled large egg
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)
Using a serrated knife, split the baguette in half lengthwise. Toast the baguette if desired (recommended if the baguette isn't fresh).

Mix the pesto and mayonnaise together in a small bowl and spread onto both cut sides of the baguette. 

Slice the egg crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces, then lay the slices on the bottom half of the baguette, overlapping them slightly. Sprinkle with the red pepper flakes, if using. 

Top with the other half of the baguette and serve.

Bon week-end from a sunny SW France ♥
