Serve hot
Servings: 2
Preparation: 15 min.
Cooking: 10 min.

1 Mozzarella fiordilatte (about 250/300 gr = 8.8/10.5 ounces)

4/5 slices of crustless bread

1 egg

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

5 tablespoons breadcrumbs


Vegetable oil



1 - Cut the mozzarella into 1 cm / o.4 inches slices. Crack the egg in a soup plate and beat it. Pour the flour and the breadcrumbs in two plates. Dip the mozzarella slices in flour.

2 - Cut the sliced bread in two and put one piece of mozzarella between the two halves, like a sandwich.


3 - Dip the sandwich in the beaten egg on both sides.

4 - Then coat the mozzarella sandwich with the breadcrumbs. Repeat the steps with the other sandwiches.


5 - Heat oil in a fry pan and fry a few sandwiches at a time over medium-high heat.

6 - Turn the sandwiches just once and brown on both sides. Drain them on paper towel and sprinkle with salt. Serve immediately.

Useful Suggestions

Serve and eat mozzarella in carrozza soon after frying is, while it’s still crunchy. Choose a good quality fiordilatte mozzarella or a buffalo mozzarella, as the raw material is very important for the final result.
