This is a FRIED sandwich not to be mistaken as a grilled sandwich. But oh how good it is! I was inspired watching “Lydia’s Italy” on PBS. She made her “Fried Mozzarella Sandwiches” but I thought it would taste awesome using my “Jalapeno Beer Bread” So here it is, give it try, it’s really yummy.
Ingredients: makes 6 sandwiches
- 12 slices of my Jalapeno Beer Bread, about 1/2-inch thick, an entire loaf
- 1/4-inch thick Mozzarella Cheese slices, big enough to fill the bread but not hang over the sides.
- vegetable oil, enough to measure 1 1/2-inch deep in a medium skillet.
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 cup flour
Heat the vegetable oil in a medium skillet over med-high heat until hot, it’s got to be hot. Whisk together the eggs, salt and black pepper, then pour into a shallow dish. I use a pie pan. Add the flour into another shallow dish. Assemble the cheese slices between 2 pieces of bread then gently dredge through the flour. You want the bread lightly floured on all sides. Now quickly, but gently place in the egg mixture and coat all sides of the bread. You’ll need to work quickly so that the bread will not fall apart. Place the sandwich in the skillet and fry until golden brown all over. Remove from the oil and drain on a paper towel lined baking sheet. Work in batches. You can keep the sandwiches warm by placing the baking sheet in a 200 degree warm oven.
