Mozzarella in a carriage is the classic "street food", which can be done at home in very short time. It is one of those recipes that seems very simple to do, given the short time it takes to make it. In reality, most people, when faced with breadcrumbs, mozzarella, eggs, oil and bread, do not know where to start to get the perfect Mozzarella in a carriage, golden and crunchy at the right point. Perhaps not everyone knows that mozzarella in a carriage can be cooked in two different ways: fried and baked. Mozzarella in carrozza is a typical dish of the Italian peninsula and is widespread in the South. It seems that it was born in Campania, at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Although the Romans claim that the recipe is their property, it was designed to recycle advanced bread and buffalo mozzarella. The original recipe from Campania provides for the exclusive use of buffalo mozzarella, although it is particularly watery. Precisely for this reason, if buffalo mozzarella is used, it should be drained for a few hours. This recipe takes the name of mozzarella in a carriage because, the slices of the cheese are wrapped in two slices of bread (which act as a carriage), breaded in breadcrumbs and then fried. Then the crunchy wrapper that is obtained "protects" the softness of mozzarella, just like a princess is protected inside her carriage.
