If it’s possible to have romantic feelings for food, I definitely have a crush on these babies. Shirtless Ryan Gosling saying, “Hey Girl, let’s cuddle and light the pumpkin spice candle,” has absolutely nothing on these glorious sammies. Nothing.

I mean these sandwiches are basically the baby of an intense love affair between mozzarella sticks and grilled cheese. Could anything less than beautiful perfection come from that union? I think not.

Fried mozzarella by itself is a thing of beauty. It makes anything better. I mean there’s plain Caprese salad and then there’s fried mozzarella Caprese salad, which is infinitely better due to the goo factor of the fried cheese.

Of course, plain grilled cheese already has the goo factor, but it doesn’t have the crunch of a mozzarella stick. Well, these grilled cheese sandwiches do. Because they are breaded. Breaded bread. Genius right?

I know. Some of you that read everything I write, are like, “But Jenna, what about that health kick you’ve been on that you shouted about in your weekly word dump? Breaded bread. Really?”

Well, balance my friends, balance. I can’t do the running health nut thing without flying my foodie flag. And while I love some Caprese zoodle bowls with chickpeas, I need to indulge sometimes. With things like fried mozzarella grilled cheese sandwiches. Because life is short. And these sandwiches are just too darn good not to enjoy.

Plus, they are so easy. The whole process of making them takes maybe 30 seconds longer than making a regular grilled cheese. You just have to dip them in egg and coat them in breadcrumbs before frying them up. Then boom. Done and done and you have food heaven.

Fried Mozzarella Grilled Cheese Sandwiches


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese

  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 16 ounces of fresh mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Beat the eggs in a bowl wide enough to dip sandwiches into. In a separate bowl, whisk together Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, flour, and seasoning.

  3. In a deep pan, heat the oil up over medium high heat. Fry each sandwich for 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Serve hot and enjoy.
