Put flour, eggs, and panko in three separate shallow bowls. Season both sides of cheese slices with salt and pepper. Dredge each slice in the flour, egg, and panko, in that order. Dip each slice back in the egg and then in the panko for a second coat.
Heat oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add cheese slices and fry until golden brown, approximately 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer cooked slices to a paper towel to drain briefly. Keep warm in a 200° oven until ready to serve. You can serve with a purchased marinara sauce or the sauce from this recipe (without the meatballs).
