MOZZARELLA IN CARROZZA (FRIED MOZZARELLA SANDWICHES)
Ingredients for 4 people: 8 slices of toast bread – 250 g mozzarella – 3 eggs – 1/2 glass of milk – 100 g bread crumbs – frying oil – a pinch of salt – a little bit of flour – anchovy fillets (optional)
To prepare the mozzarella in carrozza, start trimming the slices of toast bread by removing the crust with knife. Slice the mozzarella and distribute it on the four slices of basic bread, leaving a few millimeters free from the edge.
If you love strong flavors, add an anchovy fillet in the filling. Cover with the remaining slices of sandwich bread and apply pressure with the palm of the hand to compact the sandwiches.
Cut the sandwiches in half (diagonally) and pass them in the flour.
Be careful to flour the sides especially; this procedure will prevent the mozzarella from coming out during cooking.
Beat the eggs in a baking dish with a pinch of salt and add the milk; lay the sandwiches inside a large and turn them a couple of times so that they evenly absorb the egg, even on the edges.
Pass the sandwiches in the breadcrumbs by covering them carefully, fry them in hot oil at 170 ° C, turn them with a perforated ladle, drain them to golden brown, pass them on absorbent paper and serve immediately.
Enjoy your meal!
