Fried Mozzarella Slices with Marinara Sauce

I’d  invited some friends over to watch England play Ireland in the six nations ( let’s not dwell on the result!) and was cooking a Rib of Beef Roast, but the match was at three and we probably needed something to accompany the Guiness before we ate later.

The day before I saw Matt Tebbutt cooking these mozzarella slices on the TV and thought I’d give them a go . He served them with a tapenade but I thought they’d also be great with a homemade marinara sauce. I got the recipe for the sauce from here    and made it ahead of time serving it at room temperature.

To make the slices you simply take some slices of white bread, remove the crusts and put a slice of mozzarella and a basil leaf between two slices and push the edges together to form a kind of bread ravioli. Then you simply put them through a bowl of milk, then flour and then egg  and shallow fry till golden brown.

They turned out perfectly, great snacking food for the match!

And the sauce was a delicious accompaniment,  I made a fairly big batch and froze some so will probably having that with some pasta soon.
