Bánh Mì Sandwich

Marry the cuisines of France and Vietnam for a tasty lunch or dinner sandwich. Bánh mì has several translations but is definitely a description of a type of sandwich and/or the bread that is filled for the sandwich. Derived from a French baguette it has a crispy crust and an airy, light interior. But, don't stand on ceremony - in a pinch any roll will do. If you use a French baguette, look for one that is largish (you want enough room to stuff all the goodies into it) and soft in the middle, not dense. Howie's should have everything you need! Precise amounts of ingredients for most of it is up to you. It's a sandwich! Tons of flavor with minimal effort.
