Deep fried spiced mozzarella and prosciutto



2 eggs, extra large
1/3 c. milk, whole
2 T. Original TABASCO brand Pepper Sauce 
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese 
1/2 lb. Mozzarella cheese, shredded 
1/4 c. Ricotta cheese 
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Garlic, granulated
2 T. TABASCO brand Garlic Pepper Sauce 
20 slices white bread
20 oz. Marinara sauce, prepared 
2 c. Prosciutto ham Breadcrumbs, seasoned 

1 In a medium bowl, whip eggs, milk and 1 T. Original TABASCO Pepper Sauce. Reserve this egg wash refrigerated.
2 In a bowl, combine Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese, salt, garlic and 1 T. TABASCO brand Garlic Pepper Sauce. Mix well and set aside.
3 Cut a 3 circle in the middle of each slice of the bread. Use the crust to make the seasoned bread crumbs.
4 Lay out the bread discs on a work surface. Spread cheese filling to within 1/4 of edge on 10 discs. Top each disc with 1 of the remaining 10 discs and pinch the ends tightly to form a seal.
5 Dip each disc in egg wash and then breadcrumbs. Fry in 340F oil until golden brown and disc starts to swell. Drain and reserve warm.
6 Heat the marinara sauce and add TABASCO Garlic Pepper Sauce. Serve with the bread discs and deep-fried mozzarella and prosciutto ham.
