on a whim, i decided to make mozzerella sticks- i just wanted them all of a sudden! they're super simple and super good!
4 mozzerella string cheese sticks
italian bread crumbs
cut the mozzerella stick in half
pour about 1-2 cups of oil into a pan- heat the oil up to about 350- medium/high heat
in a bowl- beat the eggs.
in a bowl- measure out about 1/2 flour
in a bowl- measure out about 2-3 cups of italian bread crumbs
one at a time: dip each mozz. stick into the flour & coat. then coat with egg- then coat with bread crumbs- then repeat the egg & bread crumbs coating (re-dip in eggs & bread crums)- a double coat works the best when cooking
do this to each mozz. stick & lay them out on a cuting board or piece of wax paper. using tongs- place each stick into the oil and cook them on each side for about 30 sec- 1 min (until golden brown) keep turning till they are brown all the way around (shouldn't take anymore than 2 min or so) you might also see little spots of cheese starting to seep out- if you do then you know they're done!using the tongs- take them out and place them on a plate with paper towels. let them cool for about 1-2 minutes and enjoy! you can eat them plain or dip them in a marinara or garlic butter sauce! they're sooo good! nom nom nom!!!! brandon really liked these, as did i, they were gone in about 5 minutes!!
yes- i know i look like tool in this picture- it's been a long day!
that's it for now- God Bless!
