TV Dinner: Bahn Mi, north country style

TV Dinner: Bahn Mi

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - It's a north country version of a Vietnamese favorite.

Chef Chris Manning makes Bahn Mi, but switches out some ingredients for ones than can be more easily found here.

He tells us that the French introduced baguettes to Vietnam and local residents turned it into a popular sandwich.
