I was craving mozzarella sticks one night, but of course, all my favorite frozen food isle American delicacies are hard to find here. Instead of restaurant inspired appetizers they have a million different flavors of perogies. So naturally I figured it couldn't be that difficult to make my own. And guess what. It wasn't hard at all!
These were were so amazing! They only took a few minutes to make. They were warm and crispy on the outside and ooey gooey cheesy on the inside. Paired with some marinara dipping sauce and they are unstoppable!
1 cup Italian Bread Crumbs (Panko is great, too just add a little Italian seasoning)
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons water
8 string cheeses, cut in half
In a large deep skillet, heat up enough vegetable oil to nearly submerge the cheese sticks. About 1 to 1 1/2 inches. Heat over medium to medium high heat- be careful not to burn down your house. Get three seperate bowls ready, and fill one with your flour, one with your egg and water mixture, and one with your bread crumbs. Get out a plate for when your friend mozza sticks are finish frying.
Take one cheese stick and roll it in the flour. Enough to coat. Then coat it in the egg mixture, and finally, roll it in the bread crumbs. Make sure to fully coat the cheese otherwise it will melt out between the crust. You can double crust them if you feel so inclined. Repeat with remaining mozza sticks. Once your oil is hot, fry for about 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown. Remove with a spatula and place on plate until all your fried mozza sticks are done. Serve with marinara sauce if desired.
