Eating Suppli al Telefono
Originally uploaded by andiamotutti.
I've been reading a bunch of blogs lately by expats living in Italy. One of them featured a recipe recently for Suppli al Telefono - they're rice balls (the rice is mixed with tomato sauce) with a bit of mozzarella at the center which are breaded and deep-fried. Chris made them recently after I forwarded the recipe to him, and they're dee-lish.

The photographic evidence of them is to the right, along with the reason they're called "al Telefono" - if you bite into the center of the Suppli and they've been cooked just right, the mozzarella will form a cord from the Suppli to your mouth like a telephone cord. Clever, eh?

I love the example with Chris eating one, excellent! That reminds me of Nigella Lawson's redition of a children's sandwich (la carreta, or some such) -- it's a slab of fresh mozzarella between two slices of white bread (crusts trimmed off). Squish the bread together so it's sealing in the cheese, then dip in egg and fry.

Ooh, I remember that recipe - Chris made that once, too. Apparently he'll make anything as long as mozzarella is in the recipe. :)

Sounds yummy! I'll try it - children or no children!
