• Martha Stewart-Grilled Mozzarella Sandwiches

    To be honest with you, I did not realize that this was a Martha Stewart sandwich. Someone gave me the recipe quite some time ago, and we love it. I will say that I sometimes have to make with fresh mozzarella and not buffalo mozzarella. It’s good, but not nearly as good as it is if you can find the buffalo.

    My photos aren't as good as Martha's, but then, I don't make as much $$ as Martha!

    Ingredients

    1 pound fresh buffalo mozzarella, cut into 4 equal pieces about 3-inches by 4-inches
    8 1/2-inch thick firm white sandwich bread
    2 large eggs
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    1 teaspoon fresh thyme, leaves
    1 teaspoon coarse salt
    A grating of nutmeg
    1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter

    I actually just use butter, and we love fresh oregano so I use that.

    Preparation

    1. 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.

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

    3. 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.
