Looking for a way to make your lunchbox more exciting? Try this tasty French style sandwich with rosemary ham, goat cheese, apple, lemon and arugula! It's sweet, salty, spicy, and crunchy and makes the perfect lunchtime meal.
Tips and Suggestions:
- Don't eat meat? Ditch the ham and add more apple slices and more goat cheese crumbles. Or try adding roasted carrots, pureed roasted butternut squash, or pickled beets for an unexpected burst of awesomeness!
- Want less carbs but still all that bready goodness? Try scooping the interior of the sandwich out. This not only cuts down on carbs but it also helps all the ingredients stay packed together on the sandwich so nothing will fall out as you eat it. Or try ditching the bread altogether and mixing all the ingredients into a salad bowl for a beautiful guilt-free lunch.
- This sandwich is perfect for picnics, lunch boxes, or even as an appetizer for parties! To turn this sandwich into a gorgeous crostini appetizer by slicing the baguette into coins, toasting them, then topping each round with la slice of apple, a little chunk of ham, a crumble of goat cheese and fresh arugula leaves topped with olive oil, lemon, and salt and pepper.
