Fried Mozzarella Sandwiches

I may have said this before, but my kids are so cliche when it comes to food preference. They love macaroni and cheese, pizza, and grilled cheese sandwiches. So I am always looking for different ways to make these foods. Mostly to keep myself sane. I love all three of those foods too, but I'd get sick of them if I ate the same exact dish each and every time.

I am a lover of fried foods. I mean...really...when's the last time you tried something fried that you didn't like? If you have an answer for that...shhhh! I'm trying to make a point here :)

So I present this amazing, super yummy recipe - FRIED mozzarella (not American cheese!) sandwich!
Fried Mozzarella Sandwiches | Just when you think a grilled cheese couldn't get any better - dip it in egg and seasoned bread crumbs and fry that baby up! #recipe

What you need:
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt
  • Flour
  • Italian bread crumbs
  • Sliced mozzarella cheese
  • Bread of your choice (I believe I used Texas Toast)
  • Oil, for frying

Beat eggs and salt together in a shallow bowl. 
Set up two plates, one with flour and one with bread crumbs. 
Make a mozzarella sandwich and then slice the sandwich in half. 
Repeat until you have enough to serve everyone. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Dip the sandwich in flour, then egg, and finally bread crumbs.

Fry until they are golden on both sides, then remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Serve.
    *I think these would be great with a side of marinara to dip. Or even add pepperoni in the sandwich like Pepperoni Grilled Cheese!
