Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large pan, cook the whole cloves in the butter and oil over medium-low till soft and fragrant, 5-10 minutes. Do not let the garlic brown.
  2. Meanwhile, slice the tomato. Spread each slice of bread with mustard. Place a slice of cheese on each slice of bread. Dividing evenly, arrange the tomato slices, and basil and top with the remaining cheese and bread slices.
  3. In shallow bowl, beat egg and milk together. Dip each sandwich into egg mixture, turn once to soak both sides.
  4. Discard the garlic. Warm the oil in the pan over medium heat till hot but not smoking. Add the sandwiches and cook till golden brown, 2-3 minutes each side.
  5. **To bruise garlic, lay it on a flat surface and place the flat side of a chef's knife or santoku knife atop it. Bump the flat part of the blade with the palm of your hand to crack open the clove to allow its juices to exude.
