Gordon Gano once told me (and a couple hundred other people) that Frank Sinatra's favorite restaurant was Patsy's (up on 56th St.) Anyhow, when my sister invited me to dinner at Patsy's up on 56th St. I was super-excited because Gordon Gano told me it was Frank Sinatra's favorite restaurant and I was sure old blue eyes had some taste. He was a classy individual.

One of the things I had at Patsy's was something I never had anywhere else before, that being, you guessed it, mozzarella in carrozza. It was good. Very good. Mind-bogglingly good.

I resolved then and there that I had to learn to make it. Some time passed... a number of years in fact.... and I finally did learn to make it. So, without further ado, here is how to make mozzarella in carrozza. If you have never had it before, I highly recommend you try it. If you have tried it before, then I probably need to do no further coaxing.

- A large chunk of mozzarella

- Canola oil

Remove the crust from every slice in the entire loaf of bread (excluding the ends).

Save the excess crust for the feeding of the ducks.

Step 3: Cheesy

Cut cheese slices that are roughly as thick as the slice of bread and will be large enough to cover the surface area of one slice. You can fill in small gaps on the bread with small pieces of cheese. Once done, place another slice of bread atop the cheese and then cut it in half diagonally.

In other words, make a mozzarella cheese sandwich and slice it diagonally in half.

Step 4: Flour

Place a fair amount of flour in a large bowl. Take each of the triangles that you just made and coat it on all sides with flour.

Oh my god!   I just made this for the first time tonight and it was absolutely amazing!  I am now going to make this every time I make an Italian dish.  Bravo, sir!

Just made a mini batch of these. Very tasty. Being a mini batch I had some bread crumbs & batter left over. So I rolled the leftover crusts in that and cooked them up as well. Basically fried bread sticks. Not quite as tasty as the mozzarella in carrozza but not bad.

So basically its a grilled cheese. Just kidding! Grilled cheese has nothing on mozzarella carrozza .

As an unbiased third party, I declare these things delicious.
For extra awesomeness, replace the parsley with oregano. This looks delicious either way, though. :D
