  • 8 1/2 inch thick firm white sandwich bread slices
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon course salt
  • pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter


  • Place 2-4 slices of mozzarella on 4 pieces of bread. Top with other pieces of bread to form sandwiches.
  • In a wide shallow bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the half & half, thyme, salt and nutmeg. Whisk well to combine.
