What is a Po’boy
A Po’boy is a traditional sandwich from Louisiana. It almost always consists of meat, which is usually roast beef or fried seafood, often shrimp, crawfish, fish, oysters, or crab. The meat is served on New Orleans French bread – known for its crisp crust and fluffy center.
Is Po’Boy bread toasted?
New Orleans is famous for its po’boy sandwiches. In many cases, a Po’boy is made with seafood such as oysters or shrimp, which may be battered and fried or stewed. In this case, the po’boy sandwich is served hot, and the bread is usually toasted so that it will not become soggy.
What is the difference between French Bread versus Baguette
French bread is wider and longer than a baguette, with a much softer crust. It doesn’t require any special equipment to make and it’s just as versatile as a baguette, but its soft outside makes it perfect for toast or garlic bread.
