In French cuisine, fougasse is a type of bread typically associated with Provence but found (with variations) in other regions. Some versions are sculpted or slashed into a pattern resembling an ear of wheat.

It is used to make the French version of calzone, which can have cheese and small squarish strips of bacon inside the pocket made by folding over the bread. Other tasty variations include dried fruit, Roquefort and nuts or olives and goat cheese. It is known by extension as a fougasse even though it is more a sandwich than just a type of bread. The interpretation depends on the baker and your luck.

Here’s mine


Step:

  • Gather all the ingredient that you want (Sauce, meat, cheese, vegetables, peperonies, olives, ect…. Remember: Always put more of the ingredient you love
  • Make your Fougasse bread (See down this post for my Fougasse recipe)

Step:

  • Expand your fougasse bread and give it a rectangular shape (For being able to eat it with one hand if you are courageous)
  • Put cheese on every side of the rectangle you made, and turn it a bit over to make the side crust (This will also help to keep the stuff inside)

Step:

  • Put the stuff inside, keep the cheese on the top.

Step:

  • Once ready, put the oven at 360 F, put it inside, wait for 8 minutes just to get the stuff started a bit.

Step:

  • When its started to cook a bit, remove it from the oven, and put some flour on the side crust. This will act as a kind of protection againts the heat to keep the crust just perfect to eat.
  • Put it on Low Broil to only cook the top of the Fougasse. (Check it every 2 or 4 minutes to be sure its not burning).
