Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

This recipe comes from my "Kid Approved Meals" notebook that I bought when I was at a Mothering conference. For more meals by Christine Steendahl and Jenn Caligado, you can go to her website, www.kidapprovedmeals.com
(did I mention that I was using my camera that I did not like, because it takes REALLY bad pictures? I was.)
Ingredients:
4 slices of Italian bread, 1 inch thick (I used 1/2 inch thick because it cost half as much at my store)
4 slices of mozzarella cheese (I just used the shredded cheese that we already had on hand)
3 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
3/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 tsp. minced garlic
2/3 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs (or you can make your own bread crumbs and add in about 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning)

Directions:
Cut a 3-4 inch pocket in each slice of bread and stuff pocket with cheese. (See picture below to see my make-shift version of this recipe, using what was cheap and what was on hand)(I hate this camera. I promise our bread was not blue.)

In a bowl, beat together eggs, milk, Italian seasoning and garlic. Soak bread in egg mixture for 1-2 minutes on each side. Dip bread into bread crumbs to coat on both sides. Grill sandwiches in hot skillet or griddle until golden brown on each side and cheese is melted.
(We served ours with spaghetti sauce to dip them in)
