Fried Scamorza

Mary Ann Esposito

Allow a slice or two of cheese per serving.


2 balls scamorza, plain or smoked
Red wine vinegar
Fresh thyme leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
Crusty baguettes


Slice the cheese into 1/4-inch thick rounds.

Heat a dry non-stick skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add several cheese slices with ample space between them. Allow the cheese to melt into small pancake size rounds.  Flip the rounds to brown both sides.

Transfer the rounds to a platter; sprinkle them with the wine vinegar and thyme leaves. Add salt and pepper to taste.

These are best eaten with a knife and fork! We serve them with crusty bread slices. Note: This recipe also works well with fresh mozzarella or provolone.
