Binging with Babish: World's Greatest Sandwich from Spanglish

Spanglish, the movie your aunt refers to as a "must-watch!", is home to a Thomas Keller-inspired creation known around the internet as "The World's Greatest Sandwich". Can such familiar ingredients earn such a prestigious moniker? Let's find out, and let's take it one step further: by baking our own rustic country loaf to act as the "bread" for our creation. Recipe below!

Music: "Cream on Chrome" by Ratatat




1c room temperature wtaer
1/2 tsp instant yeast
5.5 oz bread flour
5 oz whole wheat flour
19.25 oz bread flour
2.75 oz rye flour
1 1/3c room temperature water
2 tbsp honey
2 tsp salt


In the bowl of a stand mixer, make a sponge - combine water and yeast until dissolved. Add first two flours and roughly mix, until a tight dough forms. Cover and let rest ferment at room temperature for at least 6 hours, preferably overnight.

Add remaining flours, water, and honey to the sponge, and mix until combined. Attach dough hook to stand mixer, and knead on low speed for 15 minutes, until dough is loose and sticky. Add salt during last 3 minutes of mixing. Remove from bowl, place in a large oiled tub, cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 2 hours, until tripled in size.

Preheat oven to 450F, with a pizza stone on the middle rack, and a metal pan you don't care about on the rack below. On a well-floured work surface, turn out dough. Fold four corners into the center of the dough, and place in a cheese-cloth lined colander or banneton, and let rise for 45 minutes, or until almost doubled in size. Invert onto a pizza peel lined with parchment paper. Bring two cups of water to a boil. Just before placing in the oven, slash the dough and spray the surface with water from a spray bottle. Slide onto the pizza stone, and pour boiling water into the preheated pan below, closing the oven door immediately. Bake for 35-45 minutes, turning halfway through if not browning evenly - remove from oven when internal temperature registers 210F. Let rest a minimum of 2 hours before slicing.

you tap the loaf to check for a hollow sound, meaning its aerated properly, if you want to endure its cooked through use a thermometer to check it has hit 90 Celsius in the centre. Im a baker by training

I almost forgot you were making a sandwich so when you brought out the bacon I was like "haha wtf bacon okay nice tip, Andrew"

Author Roborovski ( ago)
You tap the bread after it's baked to listen for a hollow sound. If it sounds hollow, it's cooked properly inside. Another great video!

Author Dan the Dude ( ago)

The difference between perfect dough and disaster is found in the smallest variation of water and air temperature, seriously it's fucking insane.

Author Janet2684 ( ago)
This is THE sandwich I was hoping would be featured when I heard about this channel. It would be great if you include movie clips into the videos.

Author rachmach ( ago)
I'd love to make my own bread, and I know you got up at 6am to make the bread, but how much of that 12 hours was devoted to the bread? Like, how long does it take to make bread?
