Chef Kasdi has today made for us another simple but healthy snack you can make for your children or loved ones. Make sure that the baguette is nice and crispy and serve the sandwich as soon as it has been assembled. This will ensure that the bread does not become soggy. Don’t forget your honey mustard or your favorite spread!
