Mozzarella Sticks

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups Italian-style dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 1/3 cups freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 (16 oz.) blocks pasteurized mozzarella, cut into 4 by 1/2 inch sticks
  • Ad
  • 4 large eggs, beaten to blend
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 4 cups Marinara Sauce

Directions:

Stir the bread crumbs, 1 cup of Parmesan, and 1 teaspoon of salt in a medium bowl to blend. Dip the cheese in the eggs to coat completely and allow the excess egg to drip back into the bowl. Coat the cheese in the bread crumb mixture, patting to adhere and coat completely. Place the cheese sticks on a baking sheet. Repeat dipping the cheese sticks in the egg and bread crumb mixture to coat a second time. Cover and freeze until frozen, about 2 hours and up to 2 days.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Working in batches, fry the cheese until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Transfer the fried cheese to plates. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and serve with the Marinara Sauce.

My daughter and I love these sticks to munch on while watching TV.

Ingredients

  • Oil for frying
  • 1 (8 oz.) pkg. Mozzarella cheese
  • Ad
  • 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2/3 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, or to taste (optional)

Directions

Pour oil into medium-size saucepan or deep skillet to a depth of 1-inch. Over medium heat, bring oil to 365 degrees F on cooking thermometer, {about 12 minutes}. If oil is hot before cheese sticks are ready, turn off the heat and bring back to temperature when ready to fry.

Meanwhile, cut cheese into strips 1/2-inch by 1/2-inch. Line baking sheet with paper towels; set aside. Place flour on paper plate; roll cheese strips in flour to coat.

In shallow bowl, combine egg and water. In another shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and garlic powder.

One stick at a time, coat cheese sticks in egg wash, then in bread crumbs. Repeat process to coat each stick. Place sticks in single layer on paper plate.

Ad

Frying in small batches, carefully place sticks in hot oil. Cook until golden brown, about 30 seconds. Remove with slotted spoon to lined baking sheet. Let oil return to 365 degrees between batches.

Serves: 4

Mozzarella Sticks

I've read that one should cut and freeze the mozzarella pieces first, to avoid the possibilty of them getting too gooey when frying. (01/24/2008)
