pan bagnat

Pronunciation: [pan ban-YAH]

Popular in Southern France, both in cafés and for picnics, pan bagnat is a sandwich composed of a large, split loaf or bun, the inside of which is brushed with olive oil, then filled with green pepper slices, black olives, onion slices, anchovies, tomato slices and hard-cooked egg slices—all drizzled with viniagrette.
