Ingredients

  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 8 large slices (about 10 ounces) stale white bread
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Preparation

  1. Make 4 sandwiches by placing 1 layer of the cheese between 2 slices of the bread. Gently mash the sandwiches to seal in the cheese. Heat a large cast-iron skillet or griddle over medium heat. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk and season with the salt and pepper. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in the skillet. Dip 2 of the sandwiches in the egg mixture to moisten both sides and place in skillet. Cook until browned and crisp, about 4 minutes per side, pressing with a spatula to seal. Wipe pan clean, add the remaining butter, and repeat with the other 2 sandwiches. Serve immediately.
