Let the mild, nutty flavor of avocados stand in for Swiss cheese in this classic ham sandwich.
2 ficelle loaves, about 18 inches each
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon coarse black pepper
3/4 pound sliced Virginia ham
3 large avocados, peeled and sliced
1. Cut each ficelle loaf into 3 equal pieces, and split each horizontally along one side, leaving the other side intact. Open the pieces so they lie flat.
2. Stir the butter, mustard, and pepper together until smooth, and spread on both sides of the bread. Layer with the ham and avocado, and sprinkle with the sea salt.
3. Wrap the sandwiches with parchment, and tie with a string to secure. Keep chilled and serve within 3 hours.
Tip: Ficelle is a thin, chewy baguette loaf. Substitute one standard baguette for 2 ficelles: Just cut the heels off the ends and make each sandwich a little bit shorter.
