These one-of-a-kind sandwiches are a new twist on traditional ham and cheese sandwiches without a lot of extra work. Prepared spaghetti sauce provides a tasty dipping sauce.


  • 8 slices Italian bread (1/2 inch thick)
  • 4 slices provolone cheese, halved
  • 4 slices (1 ounce each) fully cooked ham
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup spaghetti sauce, warmed


  1. On four slices of bread, layer with provolone cheese, ham, then cheese. Top with remaining bread.
  2. In a shallow dish, beat eggs and milk. In another shallow dish, combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Dip sandwiches into egg mixture, then into crumb mixture.
  3. In a large skillet over low heat, cook sandwiches in butter for 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with spaghetti sauce for dipping.
