In honor of Bastille Day, today's Delicious Link is a nod to French cuisine. While you could certainly make a simple ham-and-cheese baguette, this slightly more decadent version of the classic sandwich — served warm on a buttery croissant — kicks things up a notch.

Stop by your local bakery, pick up a couple of croissants, and make this sandwich for dinner tonight.

The key to these delicious sandwiches is the glaze that gets brushed on top of the croissants before baking. A mixture of honey, mustard, and brown sugar, the glaze not only provides a "glue" for the poppy seeds to adhere to, but also gives the sandwich a hint of caramelization.

After a quick stint in the oven, the sandwiches are warm and crispy. Paired with a cold glass of rosé, this is the perfect meal to celebrate our French friends.
