Fried Mozzarella Sandwich

Fried Mozzarella sandwch is a typical appetizer of Campania cuisine. Perhaps one of the most famous, iconic and mouth-watering!
So how do you make mozzarella sandwich?
In this recipe, our company chef Giorgio Guglielmetti, together with his sous chef and friend Rodrigo, decided to show us their very personal version of the fried mozzarella sandwich recipe.
We start with a generous slice of buffalo mozzarella, enclosed between two slices of bread and enriched with a few fillets of Cantabrian anchovies. You then proceed to cut it with a round pasta cutter and fry it in hot oil after dipping it twice in beaten egg and panko bread. The result? A treat for the eyes...but more importantly, a joy for the palate.
