Back in the day when I used to buy bread (okay, it really wasn't that long ago... roughly a year or so), Frog Prince would request "Kroger" sandwiches. Which, just meant I made sandwiches on Kroger's take-and-bake French bread. We love these sandwiches -- we even made them for our family before our weddding. Delicious.
But, we haven't purchased bread in such a long time ... thus, no sandwiches.
This made Frog Prince quite sad.
So, I tried a new version of these sandwiches using leftover hamburger/hotdog buns, and they were just about as tasty as the French bread originals. I'll have to try this next time we have French bread too :) I don't know why I didn't think of this before!

Bread/Rolls of your choosing
Slice the bread in half and sprinkle generously with garlic powder (to taste, of course). Top with cheese of your choosing. I love making a mozzarella and tomato sandwich. Frog Prince likes turkey and extra sharp cheddar -- experiment with what you like. Mushrooms are quite tasty too.
If you do a veggies that tend to "leak" liquids when cooked (e.g., tomato, mushroom, zucchini), you can either make a layer of cheese on both sides of the bread, or saute them before hand to prevent soggy bread. Then, simply add the veggies, wrap up and toast.
Wrap up the sandwich in a piece of tinfoil lightly sprayed with cooking spray.
Toast in the oven (or toaster oven) for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees. Then, unwrap and enjoy the deliciousness.
