Mozzarella in Carrozza Recipe

15 minutes


Mozzarella in carrozza

  • 6 slices of white bread, crusts removed
  • 1 buffalo mozzarella
  • 3 slices of Parma ham
  • basil leaves
  • 1 egg
  • milk, a splash
  • oil, for frying


To begin, crisp up the Parma ham in a dry frying pan, then set aside
Make sandwiches by layering the mozzarella, ham and basil on one piece of bread, making sure to leave a gap around the edge for sealing
Beat the egg lightly with the milk and some salt and pepper in a shallow bowl. Use a little of the mixture to moisten the edges of the sandwich, then add the other piece of bread on top, sealing firmly. Repeat for the other 2 sandwiches
Once you’ve made the sandwiches, heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add a splash of oil
Fry each sandwich until crisp and gold, flipping so both sides are the same. Cut into pieces and serve at once
