Pan Bagnat (Sandwiches, Monaco Style)

Serves 6.

*Anne's note: The nutritional analysis omit the
anchovies; they would substantinally increase the sodium in the recipe
"Pan Bagnat is the name for this stuffed sandwich in Monaco and in France (where the name is hyphenated). The fillings can vary. For example, Bordeaux-born Celine Beteta Wong, who works in the office of the Consulate in New York, says she also fills her Pan Bagnat with tuna. It can be a complete meal - great for a picnic or bag lunch.
shared it with me many years ago."
