- 250 g mozzarella
- 1 sprig of basil
- about 120 ml of milk
- 100 g of flour

1. Cut off the rind of the bread slices. Pat dry the mozzarella and cut lengthwise into 4 equal slices. Rinse basil and shake dry, pluck off the leaves and cut them to small pieces. Sprinkle each little basil on 4 slices of bread and put 1-1 slice of mozzarella to the center. Place the remaining slices of bread on it and press the edges gently.
2. Add the milk and flour each in a deep plate . Put the bread slices in milk and squeeze gently at the edges , then coat with flour. Tap off any excess flour. Whisk the eggs with 4 tbsp milk in a deep dish, and season with salt and pepper.
3. Heat oil for deep frying until its getting bubbly. Turn the floured slices of toast in the egg – milk mixture and fry until golden brown in 1-2 minutes in hot oil, turning once. Drain on kitchen paper and serve as hot as possible . Serve with a green salad , arugula salad or with tomatoes.
