Potential VP Applicant Pepper & Egg Sandwiches

Putting Marco Rubio on the ticket is widely seen as one of Romney's few existing plausible options for closing the GOP's favorability gap among Latino voters.

Potential VP Applicant Pepper & Egg Sandwiches
Makes 6 servings

This could potentially be your favorite sandwich.

1 thin French or Italian baguette (8 oz.), split
1/4 cup olive oil, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
6 eggs
3 Tbsp. milk
1 red pepper, roasted, peeled, seeded and chopped
½ cup mild giardiniera, drained
1-1/2 cups lightly packed arugula leaves
Salt and pepper

Heat oven to 400°F. Combine olive oil and garlic.  Brush cut sides of bread with 3 Tbsp. mixture.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp and golden brown on edges.

Mix together eggs, milk, roasted peppers and giardiniera.

Heat remaining oil and garlic in large nonstick skillet.  Add egg mixture; cook over medium heat 2 min.  Sprinkle with arugula and add salt and pepper to taste.  Cook 2 min. or until set, stirring occasionally.

Fill prepared bread with egg mixture.  Cut evenly into 6 sandwiches and serve immediately.

Substitute 1/2 cup jarred roasted red peppers, drained and chopped, for red pepper that is roasted, peeled, seeded and chopped.
