Zapiekanka – Roasted Baguette

One of the first street foods and fast foods in Poland, with origins in socialistic 80ties. Zapiekanka – Roasted Baguette originally was prepared with onion, champignons, cheese and ketchup. Check also my other version of zapiekanka with salami, onions and 3 types of cheese.

Classic version:

Saute diced onion, add diced mushrooms, salt and pepper.

Make a shallow hole in the middle of baguette. Fill it with mushroom filling. Sprinkle with grated cheese.

Place Zapiekanki in hot oven (360F/ 180 C) for 10 minutes.

My husband’s version:
  • baguette
  • salami or other meats’ slices
  • onion (optional)
  • cheese – few types
  • ketchup

Cut baguette along, arrange salami slices, chopped onion and cheese. I used 2 usual soft cheese slices and one grated slow ripened type of cheese.

Roast Zapiekanki in hot oven (360F/ 180 C) for 10 minutes.

Smacznego! 🙂

  1. I love Zapiekanka! I’ve always made the classic version but now I’m excited to try your husband’s version with salami and onion. Does anyone else have a different variation of Zapiekanka that they’d like to share?
