Grilled mozzarella cheese

This recipe classic Italian sandwich, makes simple but tasty sandwich using the freshest handmade mozzarella that he buys at local cheese or gourmet stores. Serve it for lunch with a light salad, or cut into squares to serve with drinks before dinner. When properly cooked and bitten into, the mozzarella in this "Italian grilled cheese" will produce long strings. These sandwiches may be prepared one hour in advance. Before serving, reheat in an oven at 350° F.



1. Divide the slices of mozzarella between two slices of the bread. Cover with the remaining two slices of bread to make two sandwiches, and set aside.

2. In a shallow bowl, beat the egg, water, and a little salt. In a large sauté pan large enough to hold both sandwiches, warm the olive oil over medium-high heat. Dip the sandwiches in the egg mixture, and when the oil is hot but not smoking, add them to the pan. Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. You may also brown the edges of the bread by using tongs to hold the sandwich upright in the pan.

3. Remove from the pan, slice in half, and serve.
