In France, baguettes are a perfect food to be enjoyed at any time of day. At Maison Parisienne, we enjoy our baguettes with butter and jam during breakfast, or as a butter and jambon sandwich during lunch. Our menu offers a variety of baguette sandwiches, including Le Thon Mayo with Tuna, Le Parisien with Ham and Swiss, and Le Dagobert with Ham and Egg (vegetarian options are also available).
Tip 1: Your baguette may lose its freshness after 24 hours, but you can still enjoy your baguette by holding it under drinkable water for 1 second and then putting it in a 200F oven for 5-6 minutes.
Tip 2: After 24 hours, you can still enjoy your baguette by cutting it into thin slices to make small tartine bases or as croutons in your soup or salad.
