Fried Mozzarella Rounds

Start to Finish: 30 minutes
Makes 4 slices
¼ cup all-purpose flour
4 large eggs
¼ cup whole milk
2 cups panko breadcrumbs
½-pound ball fresh mozzarella, cut into four ¼-inch slices
1 cup olive oil
Place the flour in a wide, shallow bowl. In a second wide, shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Place the panko in a third wide, shallow bowl.
One at a time, dredge each slice of cheese through the flour, shaking off the excess, then dip into the egg mixture, coating thoroughly. Place the slices into the panko and coat evenly on both sides. Pass each slice through the egg mixture a second time, then again through the panko.
Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Arrange the cheese slices on it, then placein the freezer for 20 minutes.
In a medium saute pan over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the breaded cheese slices, in batches if necessary, and fry each for about 2½ minutes on the first side, then 1½ minutes on the second side. Move the cheese slices to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
