Spice up you and or your families lunch boxes with this tasty cheesy sandwich recipe. The perfect healthy-ish lunch snack.
1 loaf pane di casa bread (640g)
¼ cup pizza sauce
100g shaved leg ham, torn
¼ cup sliced kalamata olives
¼ cup thinly shredded fresh basil
2/3 cup grated pizza cheese
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
1 cup finely grated parmesan
Cut bread into 12 x 1.5cm thick slices, reserving remaining bread for another use.
Place half the bread on a clean board. Spread evenly with sauce (about 11/2 teaspoons on each). Top with ham, olives, basil and cheese. Top with remaining slices of bread.
Whisk eggs with milk in a large jug. Season with pepper. Pour into a shallow dish. Place parmesan in a separate, shallow dish.
One at a time, place a sandwich into egg mixture, leaving for 15 seconds before turning over and repeating on the other side. Dip in parmesan to coat on both sides. Place on an oven tray lined with baking paper.
Cook in a hot oven (200C) for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. Remove.
Serve sandwiches cut in half.
Try replacing the ham with salami, for a change. Pane di casa is an Italian bread available from Woolworths supermarkets.
