It's like some garlic toast and a grilled cheese sandwich made love :)
a loaf of french bread
4 slices of provolone
1 cup italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup milk
a dash of garlic powder
small jar of your favorite tomato sauce (I like Ragu)
In a bowl big enough to dip the sandwiches, whisk the eggs, milk, and garlic powder. Use another bowl for the bread crumbs.
From the loaf, cut four 1 in. thick pieces of bread..
Cut slits into each slice, as deep and wide as you can without tearing the bread. Stick a piece (or 2) of provolone cheese into the slit..
Dip the sandwiches into the bread, then the bread crumbs..
Cook them on a buttered skillet til cooked through (about 3 min each side)..
**UPDATE- some of my friends have been making these and have had a hard time getting the cheese to melt. I kept mine on the skillet for a while, but another idea would be; Once they've browned up on the skillet, put them in the oven at 350 for about 8 min or so. This way you don't have to burn your bread trying to melt the cheese.
Serve with warm tomato sauce for dipping. Nom Nom Nom..
