Yield: Makes 2 Sandwiches

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

4 slices thick brioche
2 cups whole milk
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
4 eggs, whisked
1/2 cup burrata
3 tablespoons fresh basil, diced
2 cups grape tomatoes, sliced in half
1 shallot, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
Canola oil for frying
Balsamic glaze, garnish
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Place milk, flour, and eggs into three separate shallow dishes. Next, take two slices of the brioche and place 1/4 cup of the burrata on each slice. Top the burrata with one tablespoon fresh basil. Place the remaining brioche slice on top. Now, take one of the brioche sandwiches and dip it into the milk. Brioche will soak up a lot of the milk so be gentle. Next, dip the sandwich into the flour followed by the egg. Set aside and repeat process with remaining sandwich. Now, add the canola (about an inch to two inches) to the skillet and preheat to medium-high heat. Place the burrata sandwich gently into the skillet and fry on the first time for about three to five minutes. Flip, and then fry other side for about three to five minutes or until golden brown. Remove from skillet and repeat process with remaining sandwich.

In a large bowl, combine grape tomatoes, olive oil, remaining basil, shallots, and s&p. To serve the sandwich, slice in half, place on plate, add grape tomato mixture next to the sandwich and drizzle the tops with balsamic drizzle. Serve immediately.
