    mydesigirl's Note:

    This sandwich is from a St Louis deli. It's really good for a cold night without a lot of time. Great with chips and a pickle.

      I love gerber sandwiches. However, I should note that true St Louis style ones use provel. Unfortunately, it's impossible to find outside of St Louis. However, provel is a blend of Provellone, Cheddar, and Swiss, so I generally try to blend these (although I haven't figured out just the right blend yet).

      I was so surprised after I made this sandwich tonight! It is sooo easy, yet delicious! I cooked it at 400 instead of 350 for 15 minutes(due to my own mistake) but it turned out delicious! Next time I may try it with mozzarella cheese, but it really is delicious exactly the way it is. And the pickles and chips are a must!
