Mozzarella in Carrozza

  • Prep time
    15 minutes
  • Cooking time
    5 minutes
  • 4 portions

Ingredients

8 slices Campagnolo Multigrain bread (crusts removed)
1-2 balls (approx. 125g / 4oz) fresh mozzarella (pat dry and cut into ½ cm slices, then strips)
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
3 tbsp milk
1 cup bread crumbs
1 cup panko
Salt and pepper
Olive oil (for frying)
Stefano Marinara sauce (for dipping)

Preparation

  • Make sandwiches out of the bread and mozzarella, leaving a little margin around the edges unfilled with cheese, and press the edges together with your fingers to help seal.
  • Beat the eggs and milk together in a shallow bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Place flour in a shallow bowl. Mix breadcrumbs and panko together in another shallow bowl.
  • Warm the oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  • Dredge the sandwiches in flour in order to coat all sides, and remove excess.
  • Dunk briefly in the egg and milk. Place in breadcrumb mix.
  • Fry in hot oil on each side till crisp and gold, and place on a kitchen towel.
  • Cut in half and serve with Marinara sauce.

Tips
Take care not to fry the sandwich at too high temperature… you’ll risk grilling the outside before the cheese has a chance to melt on the inside.
