I had all intentions of revamping, and getting better pictures of my Baked Spinach and Artichoke Dip, but the more I researched Italian Cuisine, the more I wanted to try something new. Of course, I’ll still be heading back to that dip, because it is divine, but today I decided to go with something new.
Mozzarella en Carrozza.
Basically a cheese sandwich. I know it doesn’t sound all that new, but trust me it is! I found the recipe first on Mangia Bene Pasta. I really enjoyed browsing her recipes, and learning a little more about traditional Italian food. I kept coming back to the Mozzarella en Carrozza though, because my parents recently told me about this new Gourmet Cheese Sandwich shop that they visited.
Normally my cheese sandwiches consist of buttered bread and Cheddar cheese, sometimes a slice of ham. This sandwich is so much more though! It’s just as easy to make, giving you a new lunch option.

You can eat the Mozzarella en Carrozza by itself, but I enjoyed mine dipped in Hunts Italian Sausage sauce. It was like a pizza, but in sandwich form. So delicious!
I am so excited that Diane has invited us all to join in the Food of the World party. A big welcome to all the Co-Hosts. Take a moment and go visit them.

Okay I am officially hungry! That looks and sounds so good! Love the layout of your blog. Stopping by from #Sitsblogging
This looks amazing! What a great idea to do the cuisine of a different country once a month. I will definitely be back for more. New visitor from #sitsblogging.
looks so crispy and delicious
This looks so delicious! My sandwiches usually consist of the same ingredients that yours do but this looks so much better 🙂 Thanks for sharing! #SITSblogging
There's not much better than a crusty bread, pan fried, and it includes cheese. This looks delicious and so hearty. I love this idea for a link party especially since I like to travel so much. #sitsblogging
I am simply drooling! Even a basic cheese sandwich is satisfying but that one looks borderline decadent!
Okay I'm in love with this! I love grilled cheese and this is so…well, classy! It sounds delicious but not so different that the whole family wouldn't enjoy it. Thank you for sharing this! #SITSBlogging
okay Mozzarella en Carrozza, you are now my new favorite!! #SITSBlogging
Grown up grilled cheese. I love this idea. I want to make it for lunch tomorrow. #SITSBlogging
Oh my goodness it is like a cheese filled french toast! I am pinning this so I can try this. Coming by from SITS Comment Love Tribe!
Yum! Really, you had me at cheese. This reminds me of a Monte Cristo… and I love the melted Swiss cheese in the egg battered bread. Thanks for sharing this recipe. #SITSBlogging
Mercy, that's high class grilled cheese…no Velveeta here. 😀 (Yeah, I'm #SITSBlogging , too)
One of my favorite foods is a good grilled cheese sandwich. This one looks incredible! I will definitely be trying it this way next time I make one!
I'm sorry..what the what?!!! this looks incredible…omg!!!!
Okay, I'm going to try this. thanks for sharing
Reading these type of blogs before heading to bed is never a good idea. Now I'm hungry… lol~
I've never made grilled cheese this way–now I'm going to have to try it. Thank you!
This is really cool. It is like an French toast cheese sandwich. Love it.
Pinning this for sure! I've made grilled mozzarella sandwiches before, but this looks ever so much better. Would love for you to stop by and share at Fridays Unfolded! #SITSblogging
I am absolutely making these. Thanks for sharing.

I really enjoyed this post. Thank you for the inspiration!
This sounds yummy! I think we may have to try it… and add a little garlic to the bread.. yummy
Oo that is a brilliant plan! I'll definitely have to try it again with garlic.
Oh my my mother makes the same thing ! We too make mozzarella carrozza- gosh haven't made it in a while thanks for the reminder !
This is perfect timing! We're stuck at home due to this "historic" ice storm, and I actually have bread and mozzarella on hand. My kid LOVES cheese, and this actually sounds like something I'd enjoy as well. Better than the plain boring grilled cheese. #SITSblogging
Soooo many great things to cook on your site! I look forward to trying some of these out with my family. Thanks for sharing! #SITSBlogging
It is so cold here today your Mozzarella En Carrozza looks so delicious, I would just love this recipe. Thanks for sharing and hope you have a great week!
