Description

This Fried Mozzarella Sticks Recipe is filled with gooey cheese. The homemade mozzarella sticks have a perfectly crispy batter that is beyond delicious.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Italian-style dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 1/3 cups freshly grated Parmesan, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 (16-ounce) packages mozzarella cheese sticks
  • 4 large eggs, beaten to blend
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine bread crumbs, 1 cup of Parmesan and salt.
  2. Cut each mozzarella stick in half.
  3. Beat eggs in a shallow bowl and  dip the cheese sticks into 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. Repeat dipping the cheese sticks in the egg and bread crumb mixture to coat a second time. Place the cheese sticks on a baking sheet, cover and freeze until frozen, about 2 hours.
  4. 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.
