Mini Fried Cheese Sandwich Recipe
Mini fried cheese sandwiches are a fun and delicious dinner that both kids and adults love. If you like fried cheese sticks and you like grilled cheese sandwiches, then you will love the mini fried cheese sandwiches. The best thing is, they are a wonderful homemade snack that can be prepared in just a few minutes. To start, you will need the following ingredients:
- One block mozzarella cheese
- One mini Italian bread loaf (about 2 inch by 2 inch squares)
- 4-5 eggs
- Bread crumbs
- Italian seasoning
- cooking oil
- Marinara, ranch, or dipping sauce of choice
First, bring about 2 cups of cooking oil to a boil in either a pot or deep fryer. Then, while the oil is warming, mix a couple of sprinkles of garlic and Italian seasoning in with a bowl of bread crumbs. Crack the eggs and stir them up in a separate bowl. Also, place a cup of flour on a large plate or cutting board.
Next, cut the crust off of the Italian bread slices you are using. Then cut mozzarella slices, about a quarter of an inch thick, to fit the mini bread slices.
Take two of the bread slices and spread a half a teaspoon of tomato pesto on one of the slices of bread. Then roll one of the mozzarella cheese slices lightly in flour and make a sandwich with two slices of bread and the pesto.
Dip the entire sandwich in the mixed eggs and then roll it in the bread crumbs. Shake off any excess and place the sandwich on a plate. Repeat until you have as many sandwiches as you want to make.
Then, slowly place the mini cheese sandwiches into the hot cooking oil. Let the sandwiches fry 2-3 minutes, or until the sandwich browns and floats to the top of the oil.
Spoon the mini fried cheese sandwiches from the hot cooking oil and place them on a paper towel on a plate. Let them cool for about 5 minutes, while the paper towel soaks up the excess grease.
Once the sandwiches have cooled, you can choose to dip them in ranch or marinara sauce or you can just eat them plain because they have the pesto already inside of them.
