Jambon Beurre

Jambon beurre

Bread, ham, and butter.

So very simple. But often it’s the simplest things that are the best.

This was another treat from the France portion of our trip. We bought it at the bakery right before we left Paris, and ate it that night after we arrived at the hotel in Germany.

(And then instantly regretted not discovering it earlier in our trip!)

It’s so simple, it’s almost embarassing to post a recipe for it – but something about the combination of crusty bread, good ham, and high-quality European butter is just so very delicious.

  1. I just baked some SD French baguettes today and I have ham sliced off the bone. No European butter though … 🙂

  2. A_Boleyn – Oooh, yes those baguettes you baked would be so perfect for this!
