I usually get my baguette fresh from this bakery named sable. Its just so perfectly fresh and delicious that when it is toasted to perfection you get a crunch on the outside and a soft, fresh bite on the inside.

These can be thrown together in a matter of minutes. You can assemble this before hand and place it in the oven just before serving.

Notes:
✔Try to get fresh baguette, otherwise it will be very hard.
✔ When making the white sauce, do not thicken it too much when on the stove. Because it will thicken by itself once it is off the heat. If the sauce is too thick, whisk in a little milk to get the right creamy consistency.
✔I used nandos sauce in half of my sliced baguettes and my fav sweet chilly sauce on the rest. If you prefer, you can use the normal tomato ketchup too.

  2. Hi Sadia. These look amazing! I am thinking about making these for a wedding. I have a question though. Can I make them in advance? How long do you think they would keep for? Thanks

    1. Thank you Nneka!
      You can keep them for a day. But if you keep it for long the bread might become soggy because of the white sauce. But i think i would be okay if you assemble everything and keep in advance, but bake at at the time of serving. Hop you will like this. Please lemme know if you have any more doubts.
