Mozzarella and Ham in Carrozza

Hot mozzarella oozing from a fried, egg-dipped ham and cheese sandwich is a real treat!



Form the sandwiches: Bread, a slice of mozzarella, a slice of ham folded to fit inside the edges of bread, mozzarella and another slice of bread. Pinch the edges of the sandwiches to seal them.

Add flour to a shallow bowl [1] and season with the garlic and onion.

Beat the eggs in a dish with the Parm, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Heat a large frying pan [2] with a shallow layer of olive oil, 3-4 turns of the pan [3], over medium heat. Coat the sandwiches in flour, then in egg batter. Fry the sandwiches, two at a time, until deeply golden, 6-7 minutes, turning occasionally. Add a bit more oil to the pan [3], if necessary, for the second batch of sammies.

Cut the sandwiches corner to corner and serve.
