There was a restaurant where I used to have lunch for years. My favorite thing on the menu was the cheesy garlic bread steak sandwich. I loved that sandwich. It was French bread, topped with a garlic butter spread that was mixed with cheddar and jack cheese. It was served open faced, crusty, hot and melty. Then they placed some slices of steak on top. Then it was sprinkled with some tomato and onion bits. Then it was devoured…..by me. It’s not exactly a healthy sandwich. So, as much as I like it, I don’t make it very often. But I happened to have some leftover steak the other night and I immediately thought of this sandwich.
I hope you like it as much as I do!
Cheesy Garlic Bread Steak Sandwich
Sandwich sized portion of a good crusty French loaf, sliced in half
3 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
1 stick of butter, softened
1 tblsp of olive oil
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese and/or Monterey Jack cheese
cooked steak, sliced thin
tomato and green onion, minced
Heat oven to 425. In a bowl, mix together the softened butter, fresh garlic, cheese and olive oil. I mix some green onion into the butter mixture. Slather some of that mixture on the bread. Place bread on baking sheet and bake until topping is all melty and bread is getting crispy. Remove from oven and place slices of steak on top. Sprinkle with the onion and tomato.
