The Aforementioned Lunch: Grilled Mozzarella Sandwiches

| May 14, 2006 | 3 Comments

I’ve held you in suspense long enough, I think, so here it is.

A few months back my mother and I, along with a few of my friends went to a Martha Stewart taping where Mario Batali made these fabulous Grilled Mozzarella Sandwiches. So I decided to make a variation of that, and serve it with onion straws and a simple romaine and plum tomato salad.

My mother was awed. I think that means it was good. It definitely doesn’t fit under the category of healthy, but it was good nonetheless.

Grilled Mozzarella Sandwiches
serves 5

5 slices fresh mozzarella (about 3x4x.25 inches)10 slices Italian bread
2 large eggs
1/2 cup half and half
1/2 tsp dried basil, or 1 tsp fresh basil, torn into small pieces
1 tsp salt
a dash of nutmeg
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp butter

In a medium skillet, heat half of the olive oil and half of the butter.

Combine eggs, half and half, basil, salt and nutmeg in a medium bow. Beat together until well mixed. Keep the whisk handy, as you will want to remix later.

Place the one slice mozzarella between two slices of bread and dip into the egg mixture. Next place it in the skillet. Let each sandwich brown on both sides.

Serve sandwiches warm.
