It’s quite natural that as a restrict my refined carbohydrates and diary, and publish a DELICIOUS recipe for a fancy cheese sandwich. But seriously, is there a better comfort food, or casual date night food, than a perfectly made toasty.
I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I did….

Preparation 25 min
Cooking 5 min
8 small country-style (farmhouse) bread slices
5 balls (150 g) mozzarella cheese, drained and sliced
3⁄4 cup (175 ml) milk
All-purpose (plain) flour, for dusting
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons (25 g) butter
Salt and pepper
Put the slices of mozzarella on half the bread and top with the remaining bread to make sandwiches. Beat the eggs in a shallow dish with the milk and season with salt and pepper. Dust the sandwiches with flour and place in the beaten eggs, pressing down gently with a spatula (fish slice) until they have absorbed some of the mixture.
Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat, add the sandwiches, and cook for about 2 minutes on each side, until crisp and golden brown. Remove with a spatula and drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
