Servings: 12 people
- 12 Mozzarella cheese sticks
- 2 eggs beaten
- ½ cup flour
- 1 ½ cups Panko bread crumbs Italian seasoning
- Oil for frying
Unwrap cheese sticks. Blot with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture.
Set up three bowls: eggs, flour, bread crumbs
Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet
Working with one cheese stick at a time, dip into egg, then into the flour, then back into the egg and finally into the bread crumbs. Press bread crumbs firmly onto cheese stick making certain all areas are covered. Place on baking sheet.
Freeze cheese sticks for 1-2 hours until they are fully frozen.
Pour oil into a pan. You will need at least two inches of oil. Heat oil to 375 degrees.
Place 3-4 cheese sticks in hot oil. Cook for 2-3 minutes until nicely browned. Remove from oil and place on paper towels to absorb excess oil.
Serve hot with marinara sauce.
