Instructions:

  • Cut each slice of bread into 2 triangles. Top 8 of the bread triangles with the Mozzarella slices and chopped anchovies.
  • Place the basil leaves and olives on top and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Lay the other 8 triangles of bread over the top and press down around the edges to seal.
  • Mix the eggs and milk and pour into an ovenproof dish. Add the sandwiches and leave to soak for 5 minutes.
  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan to 180′-190’C/ 350′-375’F or until a cube of bread browns in 30 seconds.
  • Before cooking the sandwiches, squeeze the edges together again.
  • Carefully place the sandwiches in the oil and deep-fry for 2 minutes or until golden, turning once. Remove the sandwiches with a perforated spoon and drain on absorbent kitchen paper. Serve immediately while still hot.

If you prefer, try adding a peeled prawn (shrimp) to each triangle. For smaller sandwiches, cut the bread into 4 triangles.
