Classic jambon-beurre (foreground)

A jambon-beurre (pronounced [ʒɑ̃bɔ̃ bœʁ]; French for '"ham-butter"') is a French ham sandwich made of a fresh baguette sliced open, spread with salty butter, and filled with slices of ham.[1]

Each 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]
