Tip

Bordier butter is a ridiculously good butter made in Brittany. If you can't find it, use the best salted butter you can find.

Toasted Baguette with d’Affinois and Bordier Butter

Jon Shook, Vinny Dotolo, and Ludo Lefebvre

Sure, these little morsels are the opposite of detox food (they consist of bread, cheese and not one, but two types of butter), but the heavenly flavor is totally worth the splurge. Like all simple recipes, this one is made by the quality of ingredients, so be sure to use the best bread, butter, and cheese you can find.

1 baguette

unsalted butter, as needed

kosher salt, to taste

Bordier Butter (or any really good, salted butter)

d’Affinois cheese (a good quality brie will also work in a pinch), cut into 1/2-inch slices, as needed

1. Heat a griddle to 350°F (you can also heat a large pan over medium heat). Slice baguette in half lengthwise, sprea unsalted butter all along each soft inside half and cook, butter-side down, on the griddle until the bread is nicely toasted.

2. Remove the baguette and season the toasted side lightly with kosher salt, then spread a nice layer of bordier butter. Top with slices of D’Affinois cheese.

3. Press the cheese lightly onto the bread with your thumb, cut the baguette into bite-sized pieces, and serve.
