Mozzarella in carrozza - Fried mozzarella sandwiches

Ingredients: 8 slices of white bread, 2 eggs,  flour "00", 1 mozzarella “Reginella d’Abruzzo” (approx.200gr), half a glass of milk, olive oil for frying, salt.

Preparation: Prepare the slices of bread removing the crusts on all four sides. Lay  the bread for a few minutes in the beaten eggs and milk.  Cut the mozzarella "Reginella d'Abruzzo" into 4 thick slices and dip them in the beaten eggs. Dredge  the slices of bread in the flour and then dip them in the beaten eggs. Place the mozzarella between two slices of bread to form "sandwiches" . Dredge the whole sandwich in the flour and then dip in the eggs to coat completely. Press the edges together to help seal. Prepare a frying pan with enough hot oil, preferably olive oil, to a depth  that will come up  the sides of the mozzarella when frying. Fry on each side till the mozzarella melts and the sandwiches are crisp and golden. Drain on paper towels and then  serve your “mozzarella in carrozza”!
