A fine snack which i replicated from Casa Verde during our visit on the rainy Sunday…

For the boys’ lunch :)

Again, i used what i could find in the house.

At Casa Verde, mozzarrella, cooked ham and anchovy were sandwiched in between before pan frying it in olive oil – i fried mine in butter. More fragant! ^.^

I omitted the lovely anchovy because i currently didn’t stock any and also the cooked ham. In place, i sandwiched the sliced cheese sausage instead together with the mozzarella cheese.

Personally, i like both versions, very much depending who i’m eating with.

Of course, having the anchovy inside would be most ideal as it lends its saltiness to every single bite.

Yums!

But i guess if you’re a tad conscious on your sodium intake or preparing this for the kids, omitting the anchovy would be advisable. For myself, i don’t quite like the idea of having the kids consuming salty-ish food :P

Anchovy or not, the melted cheese is definitely the highlight in this simple-but-yet-so-delectable-snack!

Do give this a try if you like!

Mozzarella en Carrozza

  • 12 slices firm white sandwich bread
  • 1/4 cup drained bottled capers, chopped
  • 6 oz fresh mozzarella, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Divide capers among 12 bread slices and spread evenly. Divide mozzarella among 6 slices and sprinkle with pepper to taste. Make into 6 sandwiches, then cut off and discard crusts to form 3-inch squares.

Coat sandwiches with flour, knocking off excess. Beat together eggs, milk, and a pinch each of salt and pepper in another small shallow bowl.

Heat 1/2 tablespoon butter with 1 tablespoon oil in a 10-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until foam subsides. Meanwhile, coat 3 sandwiches, 1 at a time, with egg mixture. Fry, turning over once, until golden brown, about 5 minutes, then drain on paper towels. Coat and fry remaining 3 sandwiches in same manner.

Cut sandwiches into quarters and serve immediately.

Recipe can be found here.

pssstt : i never follow any recipe. just sandwich anything you fancy and then pan fry it like normal french toast will do! *wink*
