My Munch For Lunch is a Fried Carrozza Sandwich

I was checking out the Internet, looking for something that would work for Meatless Monday and something that would work for my "Munch for Lunch" today. LOL! I wanted something fast and in a sandwich form since I have a long list of things to do today. What I found was this Fried Carrozza Sandwich. I knew I would love it because of all the cheese. Have you guys ever tried this sandwich? I did fix it around 10:00. It served as my breakfast and my lunch. Ha! Have a great day everyone! Let's Rock Monday!

About
The carrozza, also referred to as mozzarella in carrozza (Italianmozzarella in carrozzaEnglish: "mozzarella in a carriage"), is a type of fried cheese sandwich in Italian cuisine and Southern Italian cuisine. It is prepared by frying mozzarella cheese that is within slices of bread. It is a popular dish in the Campania region of Southern Italy and in areas of New York City. Mozzarella fritta is a variation of the dish that consists of battered cheese, without any bread.

Preparation:
The carrozza is prepared with mozzarella cheese, an egg wash and bread slices. It can be prepared with various breads, such as Italian bread and sandwich loaf, among others. The bread crust is sometimes removed before it is fried, and the bread can be slightly toasted before the sandwich is fried. Preparation involves assembling the sandwich, dredging it in flour, dipping it in an egg wash and then pan frying it. Bread crumbs are sometimes used to coat the sandwich. Olive oil is typically used for frying the carrozza. Additional ingredients are sometimes used, such as ham, anchovies, eggplant, green tomatoes and basil. After being cooked, it has a crisp or crunchy texture. It can be served as an antipasti dish.

By Region
The carrozza is a street food and popular dish in Campania, a region in southern Italy. Buffalo mozzarella, which is prepared using the milk from the Italian Mediterranean buffalo, is typically used in Campania to prepare the sandwich.
It is also a popular dish in Italian-American restaurants in the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens boroughs of New York City, where it is sometimes cooked by deep frying.

Variations
A variation of the carrozza is mozzarella fritta (English: "fried mozzarella"), which is simply the battered and fried cheese without the bread.
