Classic jambon-beurre (foreground)

A jambon-beurre (French for 'ham-butter'; pronounced [ʒɑ̃bɔ̃ bœʁ]), also known as a parisien, is a French ham sandwich made of a fresh baguette sliced open, spread with butter (salted or unsalted) and filled with slices of ham.[1]

Every day in France, over 3 million jambon-beurre sandwiches are sold, more than almost any other kind of sandwich, except for fast-food hamburgers.[2]
