What’s better than butter — cheese butter!

Recipe Courtesy of Cosmo Goss and Pork Be Inspired

This sandwich has it all: thinly sliced ham, peppery arugula, a crunchy baguette, creamy cheese-butter, and a sweet hint of strawberry jam. This will be an instant classic.


For the Ham Baguette

  • 8 Ounces ham, thinly sliced
  • 4 Tablespoons strawberry jam
  • 2 Small baguettes
  • 2 Cups arugula
  • 2 Lemons
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

For the Cheese Butter

  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 Cup spreadable Brie cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


For the Ham Baguette

Slice the baguettes in half and place in a broiler, cut side up and toast until golden brown. Lightly dress the arugula with lemon juice and olive oil and hold. Spread a couple tablespoons of the Cheese Butter evenly on the bottom half of the toasted baguettes and spread the strawberry jam evenly on the top half. Place half of the ham slices on the bottom half of the sandwich; top with the lightly dressed arugula and the top half of the baguette.

For the Cheese Butter

bring both the cheese and butter to room temperature. Remove the rind from the cheese and whisk together with the butter until thoroughly incorporated. Season with salt and pepper. The Cheese Butter will hold in the refrigerator for up to a week.
