Grilled Mozzarella Sandwiches

Grilled Mozzarella Sandwiches

Turn grilled cheese into an adult dish with creamy buffalo mozzarella and flecks of fresh thyme.

  • Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 1 pound(s) fresh buffalo mozzarella 3x4 slices
  • 8 slice(s) texas toast
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup(s) heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon(s) fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon(s) coarse salt
  • dash(es) nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup(s) olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon(s) butter

Preparation

Place the mozzarella on 4 slices of the bread. Cover with the remaining slices to form sandwiches. Trim the crusts off to make perfect 4-inch squares.

In a wide shallow bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the cream, thyme leaves, salt, and nutmeg. Whisk until well blended.

In a 10 to 12-inch nonstick saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat until smoking. Add 1 tablespoon of the butter and cook until the sizzling subsides. Dip 2 of the sandwiches into the egg mixture, turning to coat, place in the pan, and cook until golden brown on the first side, about 2 minutes. Flip over and brown on the other side. Transfer the sandwiches to individual plates and repeat the process with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon butter, and 2 sandwiches. Cut in half, and serve immediately.
