If you love mozzarella sticks, you’re in for a treat. This classic Italian dish is fried mozzarella in sandwich form, with a touch of tomato sauce or ‘Nduja to add a fresh and savory flavor. Crispy, crunchy, and delectably cheesy, these simple fried sandwiches are perfect for easy entertaining. Our Lightly Salted Mozzarella, which provides the mouthwatering filling for these bites, is made from the original Italian recipe, which requires fresh curds to be stretched and pulled, then popped into boiling water before being formed into the smooth elastic ball of bright cheesy flavor we know and love.

  1. Mix the minced anchovies, extra virgin olive oil, and sundried tomato tapenade in a small bowl to make a paste. Spread this evenly over 4 slices of the bread.
  2. Place one slice of the mozzarella on each of the 4 pieces of bread, and top with another piece of bread.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with the 1/4 cup olive oil.
  4. Season the breadcrumbs with the kosher salt and pour onto a medium plate, and the eggs and milk into two separate large casserole dishes
  5. Working one sandwich at a time, place each sandwich into the milk, then the eggs, then the bread crumbs. Set each sandwich onto a large plate.
  6. Once the oil has heated, pan fry the sandwiches, working in batches if necessary, until golden brown on each side and the mozzarella has completely melted. Serve immediately.
