DIRECTIONS

  • To make the sauce: heat the olive oil in a pan and fry the onion and garlic for 30-60 seconds.
  • Add the tomatoes to the pan, then the oregano and wine and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool slightly.
  • Place the sauce in a food processor or blender and season with salt and pepper. Blend for a few seconds, leaving the mixture a little chunky. Add the basil leaves to the sauce.
  • Cut the bread slices into slightly larger discs than the mozzarella slices. Dip one side of the bread slices into the milk and then place a slice of mozzarella on the dry side with some basil leaves. Season the mozzarella with salt and pepper and make a sandwich with the other slice of bread, milk-soaked side on the outside.
  • Season the eggs with salt and pepper. Coat the sandwiches with the beaten egg.
  • Heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer and when hot deep fry the sandwiches for about 3-4 minutes until golden and crisp on the outside. Drain on kitchen paper
  • To serve: reheat the sauce and spoon the hot sauce onto the plate; place 2 mozzarella sandwiches in the middle and serve straight away.
