    Lainey6605's Note:

    This is a truly decadent sandwich! I saw this recipe being made on Food Network's Secrets of a Restaurant Chef and knew I had to make it as I love grilled cheese.

    1. 1
      Beat together the eggs, milk and Parmigiano-Reggiano in a medium bowl until they are a homogenous mixture.
    2. 2
      Season with salt, to taste, and reserve.
    3. 3
      Divide the mozzarella between 4 slices of the white bread.
    4. 4
      Put the remaining slices of bread on top of the mozzarella and press to close.
    5. 5
      Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
    6. 6
      Add peanut oil to a large wide skillet until it is at least a 1/2-inch deep. Heat over medium-high heat to 350 degrees F.
    7. 7
      Dredge each sandwich in flour and shake off the excess.
    8. 8
      Dip each sandwich generously in the egg/and cheese mixture.
    9. 9
      Work in batches, do this process to each sandwich just before frying, it's not a good idea to flour and dip ahead of time.
    10. 10
      Secure each sandwich with toothpicks.
    11. 11
      Put the first sandwich in the hot oil.
    12. 12
      Remove the toothpicks to turn and insert the toothpicks in the second side.
    13. 13
      When each sandwich is nice and brown on both sides, remove it from the oil and blot it on paper towels.
    14. 14
      Put it on a sheet tray with a rack and keep warm in the preheated oven. Repeat this process with each of the sandwiches.
    15. 15
      Cut the sandwiches diagonally into quarters, arrange on a serving platter and serve with the sauce.
    16. 16
    17. 17
      In a small saute pan combine the olive oil, garlic and crushed red pepper. Cook over medium heat until the garlic is golden brown and very aromatic. Add the lemon juice and capers and shake to combine.
    18. 18
      Swirl in the butter and season with salt, to taste. Toss in the parsley and serve immediately.

      Oh my good, gooey, gracious! The sandwich alone is gorgeous. The sandwich swirled in that decadent, buttery, tangy, silky sauce is a work of art! DO NOT miss this grown up take on grilled cheese!

      Decadent is right! Couldn't have these often, but as a special treat it is an amazing sandwich. Eggy, cheesy, gooey, etc. I, too, left the capers out for the same reason as Noo :) But the sauce was still very tasty. Thanks for a new take on grilled cheese! Made for ZWT 7.

      I have often caught Nigella Lawson on TV making these, and have been meaning to have a bash at it for ages.
      There was only me for lunch today, so I grabbed the chance to indulge myself a little ( ok a lot!), so scaled the recipe down a bit to suit one person.
      I went out and bought really cheap white bread ( Nigella's suggestion), as it's so pappy and doughy that it sticks together really well, doing away with the need to pin it together with toothpicks. I also cut the crusts off.
      I really loved the soft gooey cheese issuing forth from the sandwich with every bite, and the way that the cheese just stretched itself out of the bread, like cheesy chewing gum!!
      What really made this though was the sauce....I must admit that I left out the capers ( sorry, can't stand them!), but the buttery,garlicky peppery-ness poured over that sandwich was simply blissful, and really made it decadent.
      Loved it Lainey!!! Made for PRMR.
