Baked Italian Sandwiches

An easy and delicious weeknight meal that is great to freeze and you likely have the ingredients on hand already!

Ingredients

  • 1 Loaf French Bread
  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • Provolone Cheese
  • Ham Lunch Meat
  • Italian Bread Crumbs
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • Spaghetti Sauce, for dipping

Instructions

To Prepare

  • Turn oven to 425.
  • Put butter in large casserole dish and put it in the oven while it's preheating so that the butter will melt. You want enough butter to cover the entire bottom of the dish. Remove once it's melted.
  • Slice bread to whatever thickness you prefer.
  • Mix some bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in a dish. (Just eyeball it. You can freeze any extras to use for the next time!)
  • Beat 2 eggs and milk in a separate dish.

To Assemble the Sandwiches

  • Dip one side of a piece of bread in the milk mixture, then coat it well in the crumb mixture.
  • Set it in the buttered pan.
  • Add cheese, meat, and cheese.
  • Top it off with another bread that has been dipped in the milk and crumb mixtures.
  • Repeat until your pan is full.

To Bake the Sandwiches

  • Bake for 5-8 minutes, flip, and bake for another 5-8 minutes. Don't overbake!
  • To get a crispy finish on the bread, broil for 1-2 minutes. Keep a close eye on them! They will brown (and burn) fast.

To Serve

  • Warm a little spaghetti or marinara sauce in the microwave to dip the sandwiches in.
