Recipe by  

Mozzarella en Corrozza is a traditional Italian fried cheese sandwich! Okay, I'm being unkind - it's an extremely more-ish and tasty traditional Italian fried cheese sandwich, and I love them! Quick and simple, they are great for lunch or even a "big snack". Just a little tip, though... if you eat ANY melted cheese, avoid drinking cold drinks at the same time. The cold liquid will set the cheese in your stomach and make you feel like you've just eaten lead!

How to Cook Mozzarella en Corrozza

  1. Drain the mozzarella (if it's still in its water) and remove the crusts from the bread. Slice the mozzarella and divide among 4 slices of bread. Top with the remaining 4 slices of bread to create simple 'mozzarella sandwiches'.
  2. Pour the milk into a soup bowl, the flour into another, and beat the egg with salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste in a third. Heat about 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-hot heat. Dunk the sandwiches briefly, one by one, in the milk, then dredge in the flour, then dip in the beaten egg. Fry on both sizes until golden and crisp (about 10 minutes). The mozzarella should be completely melted and very "stringy" when the sandwich is eaten. Remove from the pan to a paper towel and allow to drain for a few seconds, then slice the sandwiches in half to make 2 triangles. Apply liberally to face!

 
Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
To turn this into a gastro-sandwich, place two or three basil leaves on top of the cheese before making the sandwich. You can also add finely sliced spring onions if you wish.

That is sooooo yummy! And the tip about adding a few basil leaves works too. The kids went wild on it (so did I if I'm honest!)
