Mozzarella in Carrozza (Fried Mozzarella Sandwiche
Entrees - Maindishes
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 cup bread crumbs, preferably panko
8 slices white sandwich bread, crusts removed
1 pound low-moisture mozzarella (not fresh mozzarella), chilled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
Olive oil for frying
In a shallow bowl, beat the eggs, then beat in
the garlic, season with salt and pepper and
beat again to combine. In another shallow bowl,
add the breadcrumbs, season with salt and
pepper and stir to combine.
Top 4 slices of white bread with a single
mozzarella slice apiece, and trim the cheese as
needed to avoid overhang. Top with the
remaining 4 slices of white bread and press
Dip both sides and all the edges of a sandwich
in the egg to coat fully, followed by the bread
crumbs. Place on a large plate and transfer to
the refrigerator to firm up while you continue
to work, then repeat with the other sandwiches.
In a large skillet, heat 1/4-inch olive oil
over medium heat. See if the oil is ready by
dropping a few bread crumbs in; they should
bubble gently. Working in batches as needed,
fry each sandwich, turning once with a slotted
spatula or a fork, until the outsides and edges
are golden brown and the cheese has melted, 1
to 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
Season with salt, halve diagonally, and serve.
