Last night, I saw an episode of David Rocco's italian adventures and he was eating this really delicious-looking sandwich, which consisted of 2 slices of bread, melting mozzarella, an anchovy, dipped in egg and fried. Today, I tried it out for Amal's afternoon snack and it was delicious! So easy to make:

Mozzarella in Carrozza


8 slices of bread, crust removed (I used whole wheat)
1 pack of mozzarella cheese
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
4 anchovy filets (optional)
2 tbsp olive oil

How to do it:

Take 2 pieces of bread and fill with mozzarella (and 1 anchovy filet if you like).
Beat the eggs and milk together in a bowl.
Dip the carrozza sandwich into the egg mixture until fully coated.
In a pan, heat the olive oil and cook the sandwiches until golden brown on each side.
Add a dash of salt and serve immediately.
