  • Author: Carrie Pacini
  • Prep Time: 10 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 15
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 Sandwiches 1x
  • Category: Sandwich
  • Method: Grilling
  • Cuisine: Italian



8 slices of bread (I used white crustless bread)
16 0z of fresh mozzarella sliced thin (I purchased Belgioioso)
4 eggs beaten seasoned with salt to your taste
3 cups of plain panko
1/2 cup of butter
4 cups of marinara sauce to serve on the side


  1. Assemble the bread and mozzarella (salt & peppered to your taste) to make 4 sandwiches.
  2. Dip each sandwich into the egg mixture, pressing around the edges to seal in the cheese.
  3. Cover in panko and set aside.
  4. Heat a frying pan on medium with a teaspoon of butter for each sandwich and grill to a golden-brown on all sides.
  5. Set aside on a baking tray.
  6. Once finished place in the oven at 300 F degrees for 5 to 8 min to make sure the mozzarella is melted (keep an eye on this for less or more time).
  7. Warm up your favorite marinara and serve on the side!
