Stuffed baguette


Stuffed baguette
This baguette is "stuffed", rather than merely filled: hollowed out and refilled with a tasty mix of sautéed onions, fried bacon bits and eggs, before browning in the oven.

A useful way to use up a leftover baguette, even if it is already going dry. It makes a great dish that children love, and grown ups, too!
