Ingredients

  • 150g grated hard mozzarella
  • 4 slices of thick white bread, crusts removed
  • 1 large egg
  • 150ml milk
  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • chilli sauce

Tip

Choosing the bread

Use a thick, hand-sliced loaf for this recipe. If using pre-sliced bread, soak it for half the time stated in the method.

Method

  1. Divide the mozzarella between 2 slices of bread, leaving a 1cm border. Sandwich both with another slice of bread, then press the edges with a fork to seal.

  2. Beat the egg and the milk in a dish, add the sandwiches and leave to soak for 1 min, turning once.

  3. Fry the sandwiches in the butter over a medium heat for 5 mins, then flip and cook for 5 mins more, until golden on both sides.  Serve with chilli sauce.
