W is for…wine-boosted baguette

Firstly apologies for the long gap in the blog. I decided as part of a health kick to do ‘dry January’, which unfortunately meant that I could trust myself to cook my remaining (alcoholic) recipes, so I had to wait until wet February to continue the blog, when dry January was well and truly over.

This recipe, is a bit of a cheat meal…it’s like combing your baguette sandwich and glass of wine all in one and baked, full of cheesy goodness. I call it my wine-boosted baguette, or simply the Boozy Baguette. The wine I used in this recipe was a sweet Moscato from BareFoot wines (because I had a particular sweet-tooth moment), but any grape variety will work.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Ingredients (per person):

  • ½ baguette;
  • 1 glass of white wine;
  • 3 slices of ham (try to get it from the butcher rather than the pre-packed stuff) cut into bite-size pieces;
  • one handful of grated gruyère cheese
  • smooth Dijon mustard


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Slice the baguette into 2-inch slices and place cut side down into a baking dish. Pour over the glass of wine so a little seeps into each piece of baguette.
  3. Spread a small amount of mustard on each slice. Then sprinkle over the ham and top with the grated cheese.
  4. Put in the oven for 25 minutes or until crispy and golden on top. Serve with the rest of wine.
