Golden Gate Grilled Cheese

From Sunset

2 Tablespoons softened butter
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup milk
1 cup coarsely grated Parmesan cheese
4 slices good quality sourdough bread
6 ounces thinly sliced turkey
1 avocado thinly sliced
1 Tablespoon chopped cilantro
2 slices Muenster cheese

In a small bowl, combine butter, garlic and chile flakes.  In a medium bowl, whisk egg and milk.  Spread Parmesan on a plate.

In a large frying pan, melt half the seasoned butter over medium heat.  Dip 1 bread slice in egg mixture, coating one side only.  Dip coated side into Parmesan.  Place to one side in frying pan, cheese side down.  Repeat with 1 of remaining bread slices.  Arrange turkey, avocado, cilantro and muenster on slices, dividing evenly.

Dip remaining bread into egg and then Parmesan.  Arrange on sandwiches cheese side up, and cook over medium heat until undersides are crunchy-golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes.  Lift sandwiches and add remaining butter to pan; flip and cook until second side is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes more.
