It was kinda late at night. My husband got off work late again. And he was snacky. So was I…so I cut up this block of mozzerella cheese I had in the fridge and tried making fresh cheese sticks for us.
I really liked how they came out. I didnt bother trying to freeze before I fried… I’d bet they’d be even better if I freeze them an hour or two next time!
Here’s the recipe:
- 16 oz block of mozzerella cheese, sliced into fat sticks
- 1 1/2 cups ap flour
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 cups plain bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
- 1/2 Tbs dried parsley
- 2 to 4 eggs and a little milk
- Enough oil to fry sticks in a small pot
Mix flour, salt, pepper and garlic in a pie plate.
Beat eggs and milk in a small bowl.
Combine bread crumbs. Parsley and cheese in another pie plate.
Heat oil in pot. As oil comes gets hot, coat mozzarella in flour. Three at a time, dip sticks into egg wash and then coat in crumbs. Repeat with egg wash and crumbs, then set aside on a plate. You want the mozzarella sticks to be completely coated in breadcrumbs with no gaps. Fry 2 to 3 sticks at a time until golden, and remove to a clean plate with paper towels to drain.
