Cheese Sandwich Week – Day 3: Une Petite Baguette

This is a sponsored post

It’s Day 3 of Cheese Sandwich Week and the #BetterWithLeerdammer challenge, and as I’m posting this from France, (the beautiful Loire Valley), today’s cheese sandwich recipe just had to be a ‘petite baguette’.

The creamy Leerdammer Original goes beautifully with watercress and sweet figs.  A quick pesto mayonnaise and sprinkling of chopped walnuts really finish this off.  Pretty as a picture as well as extremely tasty… you can’t get much better than that.

Disclosure: I was paid to develop a recipe using Leerdammer cheese. I was not expected to write a positive review and any opinions expressed are my own.


  1. Oh this sandwich really looks beautiful! I would love to take it for tomorrows lunch at work – I’m feeling a bit under the weather and all my motivation is out of the window somehow…if only someone would make me sandwich like this!

    1. Sorry to hear that Sylvia, I would send you one over but I’m in France! Hope you’re feeling better soon x

  2. I love figs and this is such a creative sandwich, absolutely gorgeous.

    1. Thanks Janice! x

  3. Those look good and nicely presented. I used to love figs, until recently when I went off them. I know this combo would taste great though.

    1. Thanks Jac – yes I’ve always wobbled a bit about figs too, think it might be since my big sister told me they look like they are bleeding inside, ewww! But I do love slices of them in desserts and sandwiches like this. Also partial to a fig roll biscuit or seven too!
