Mozzarella in a "Carriage": Mozzarella en Carozza
- 8 slices American-style sandwich bread, crusts removed
- 8 (1/4-inch) slices mozzarella
- 5 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
In a wide, shallow bowl, whisk the eggs until smooth. Add the milk, thyme, and salt and mix until well blended. Dip the sandwiches into the egg mixture one by one to coat, and set aside.
In a 12 to 14-inch nonstick saute pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil until smoking. Place 2 sandwiches in the pan and cook slowly until golden brown on the first side, about 2 minutes. Flip each sandwich and cook on the other side for 2 more minutes. Remove sandwiches and set aside in a warm oven. Repeat process with the remaining oil and sandwiches. Serve immediately.
