• 200g firm mozzarella, coarsely grated
  • 2tbsp harissa paste, plus extra to serve (optional)
  • ½ bunch of spring onions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • splash of milk (about 50ml)
  • 4 thick slices of white bread
  • 4 tbsp olive oil


  • STEP 1

    Mix the mozzarella, harissa and spring onions together in a shallow bowl with the beaten egg and milk.

  • STEP 2

    Soak the bread in the egg mixture until saturated and soft, about 30 seconds-1 min.

  • STEP 3

    Heat half the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat, or cast iron skillet over ashen coals. Drop in two of the soaked bread slices, reduce the heat to medium and fry for 2-3 mins on each side until golden and crisp. Repeat with the remaining two slices, using the remaining oil. Serve straightaway with extra harissa on the side, if you like.
