3 Tbs. dijon mustard
2 Tbs. mayonnaise
1 baguette
8 oz. thinly sliced ham
4 oz. Brie, cut into ¼-inch thick slices
4 cups (about 2 oz.) loosely packed arugula


In a small bowl, combine the mustard and mayonnaise.

Trim the ends off the baguette.  Cut it crosswise into 4 sections, then split each section horizontally so it will open like a book.  Spread the dressing on the top half; place the ham, cheese, and arugula, divided evenly, on the bottom half of each section.  Press the bread tops down slightly, cut into thirds, and serve.


The dressing can be made up to 3 days ahead.  Store it covered in the refrigerator.

The sandwiches can be made up to 4 hours ahead.  Cover them and store them in the refrigerator (although a nice crusty baguette will suffer a bit.)

Drink with:

An unoaked chardonnay, such as a Meursault.
