12 ounces sliced mozzarella
8 slices white bread, crusts removed
Dash kosher salt
Dash freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 to 3 large eggs
1 cup plain breadcrumbs
Marinara or pesto sauce, optional
Pour oil to a depth of 2 inches in a 6 quart Dutch oven. Heat over medium-high heat until your deep-fry thermometer reads 350°.
Divide mozzarella slices among 4 slices of bread. Season with salt and pepper, and cover with the remaining cheese slices to make 4 sandwiches. Trim the crusts.
Take out 3 bowls and place the flour in one bowl, the eggs (cracked and whisked) in another and the breadcrumbs in the last bowl. Dredge each sandwich in flour, coat in eggs and coat in breadcrumbs before putting on the frying pan.
Fry until golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
Let each sandwich rest for about a minute after it's been removed from the oil, then spoon some sauce over the top and serve.
