Mozzarella In Carrozza

August 19th, 2016

Submitted by Italian Centre Shop

Which child doesn’t love melted cheese? Melted mozzarella in Carrozza, means cheese in a ‘carriage’ in this case, made of white bread. Ready in minutes, it’s the Italian version of a cross between eggy bread and cheese on toast.

  • Simply cut a half inch thick slice of Buffalo Mozzarella and put it in between two slices of white bread. (This can be old but not off - a good way of using it up).
  • Use a large cup or small bowl to cut the bread into a circle, tightly closing the edges of the ‘carriage’.
  • Dip the bread into whisked egg and dredge with breadcrumbs.
  • Fry in at least half an inch of oil (sunflower or canola) in a frying pan until the mozzarella melts.

Not only quick, it’s versatile and works just as well for breakfast or dinner. You can mix it up by adding basil, pesto or other favourite herbs. For a dessert version add some apricot jam, honey or favourite spread. You also get to give the kids a lesson in Italian.
