1 thick slice mozzarella cheese per serving
1 egg, beaten with a little water or milk
Seasoned bread crumbs
Prepared tomato or marinara sauce
Pour oil into a heavy skillet about 1/2 inch deep and heat. Dip thick cheese slice into flour, then egg mixture, then bread crumbs. Carefully place prepared cheese slices into hot oil. Let one side brown (watch because they brown quickly), then with a fork and spatula, turn and allow second side to brown. Serve immediately topped with a spoonful of heated sauce. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
