  • Spread the goat cheese onto one side of each slice of bread. Sandwich two tomato slices between two pieces of bread, then dip both sides into the beaten egg. Allow the excess to drip off, then press the sandwiches into the grated Romano cheese, coating well on each side; set aside. Repeat to make 4 sandwiches.

  • Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the sandwiches until golden brown and crisp, about 3 minutes per side.

This recipe is so unbelievable good! My husband and I were in heaven! The recipe didn't specify what kind of bread to use so we got a fresh baked italian loaf sliced and used that. This sandwich is great just the way it is. Next time we might add some fresh spinach to the sandwich but it certainly doesn't need it. Read More

I made a few using the egg dip method but didn't like how it really didn't crisp up enough. So I used butter instead then dipped in the cheese. So much better. So many ways to make this your own creation. The kids like fontina better than goat. Read More

First there is the 5 star crispy-cheesy grilled romano on the bread. Then there is the creamy-tomatoey stuff inside. THEN there are the hundreds of variations you can do with this recipe. We did some with fresh herbs, some with pesto, one with colby-jack & blue cheese. The one in the picture is as written on sourdough. Yum. Thanks for the recipe(s)!!! Read More

If I were to make this again I would use less goat cheese. It was very rich but it tasted pretty good with tomato soup. Read More
