Here’s what I had on hand. Spelt bread, fresh slicing mozzarella and Trader Joe’s Vodka Sauce. I melted unsalted butter and added oregano, garlic powder & a little garlic salt, all to taste (pretend you’re making garlic bread). I brushed the butter mix on one side of the bread and tossed it, butter side down in a heated skillet drizzled with EVOO (for a nice brown crust). Then I placed a layer of thick sliced mozzarella on and topped with another slice of bread. I brushed the tops with the butter mixture and waited for the magic. Flip and brown the other side and done. Cut in quarters for easy dipping and serve with sauce. Here’s the reason for the long review: These tasted like THE BEST MOZZARELLA STICKS WE’VE EVER HAD. The grains in the bread crisped up and mixed with the seasoned butter just like Italian bread crumbs but better (this alone would keep me from using plain white bread). The fact that I sliced the cheese so thick gave a nice ratio of cheese to bread. They where so good, we picked up more cheese and regular marinara sauce (we liked it better with this) and made them the next night, served with Italian Wedding Soup (great idea from another reviewer!). As I write this I am starting to crave another one but I must control myself because these are not exactly diet food. I don’t think they would come out like this broiled, so I probably won’t try them that way. I definitely will, however, be making these again and again. Thank you NYCDAVE, what a treat!
