Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

I wanted to make an easy appetizer dish the other day, and stumbled upon an easy recipe of Mozzarella Sticks. I mean who doesn't love mozzarella sticks right?! These are wayyy better than any you may buy at the frozen section at your local super market. Buon Appetito!


8 oz mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
hot pepper flakes (if you like)
salt to taste
Parmesan cheese 
vegetable oil for frying

let's make it

1. Begin by slicing the mozzarella cheese into long thin pieces. Place on side. 

2. Pour the flour into a dish, and take mozzarella pieces one by one and dredge them into flour.

3. Then mozzarella pieces into beaten eggs, and roll into breadcrumbs. 

4. Place mozzarella sticks on a wire rack as you finish all of the pieces. 

5. This part is VERY important: freeze the mozzarella sticks for about 30 minutes. I didn't the first time because I think I'm a rebel... and the cheese fell out during the frying. 

6. Heat up oil in a deep pan, about 3 inches. 

7. Once oil is hot, begin frying mozzarella sticks until golden brown. 

8. Drain on paper towel. Serve with Marinara Sauce, or ketchup if you prefer.
