Ingredients

  • 12 Mozzarella cheese sticks
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 cups Panko bread crumbs Italian seasoning
  • Oil for frying

Sauce

  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce

Instructions

  • 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.
