Chef's Note

Chef's tip
You could replace the coppa with another cured meat, or even anchovies. Serve with an arugula salad.

Tip from Casa Azzurra
Cow's milk mozzarella is a stretched cheese that can be enjoyed either hot or old. Use cylindrical-shaped mozzarella to obtain even slices. 

For 6 servings

- 12 slices of white bread
- 250 g mozzarella
- 6 slices of coppa
- 2 eggs
- 150 ml / 3/5 cup milk
- 2 Tbsp. flour
- oil
- salt
  1. Slice the mozzarella and cover 6 slices of white sandwich bread. Add a slice of coppa to each one.
  2. Top with the remaining slices of bread.
  3. Beat the eggs with the milk and a pinch of salt.
  4. Dip the sandwiches lightly in flour, then in the egg mixture, allowing the excess to drip off.
  5. Heat a skillet containing a generous amount of oil. The ideal frying temperature is 180° C / 350 F. Once the oil is hot, fry the sandwiches on both sides until nicely browned.
  6. Drain the sandwiches on paper towel and cut into small squares. Serve hot.
