  • 4 slices white bread , crusts removed
  • 1 ball mozzarella (4.2 oz/120g)
  • 2 eggs
  • cup milk (150ml)
  • 5 tablespoon flour
  • sunflower oil , for frying
  • salt and pepper , to season


  • Add the eggs and milk to a bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper and whisk together. Add the flour on a separate plate and set them both aside.
  • Cut the mozzarella into slices, medium thickness. Divide the mozzarella slices between two slices of crustless bread. Make sure no mozzarella is outside the edges of the bread.
  • Cover each slice of bread topped with mozzarella with another slice of bread to create a sandwich. Cut each sandwich diagonally to make triangles.
  • Add enough sunflower oil to a pan so it's ¼ inch deep. Dip each triangle in flour making sure to cover all edges. One by one dip each triangle in egg quickly again making sure to cover all edges.
  • Place each egg dipped triangle in the oil and fry the sandwiches in batches until browned and crispy on each side.



  • Frying - make sure your oil is nice and hot before frying. To test it, drop a small piece of crust into the oil, if it sizzles and floats it's ready.
  • Draining - because these mozzarella sandwiches are fried it's best to let them drain on kitchen paper for a few minutes before serving. It also lets them cool down, they'll be super hot after frying.
  • Variations - if you want to jazz up your Mozzarella in Carrozza, salted anchovies, prosciutto, grilled vegetables or sun-dried tomatoes are delicious variations but this is super versatile and you can add whatever you like!
