Easy Cheesy Mozzarella Sticks

A girl walks into a bar… Too soon? As of lately this girl is going for long walks to the kitchen. Bar food is a thing of the recent past considering this quarantine. I miss the late night simple things; a juicy burger with fries, buffalo wings, jalapeno poppers, pizza that looks like slices from an 80’s movie, hell anything fried and glazed. Most of all I miss a good fried cheese. That epic pulling apart of the toasty cheese has to be in the top 3 of food porn scene history. This easy fun recipe is a ode to bar food, the simple finger snacks we took for granted. Just pulling at my heart strings which in this case are made of mozzarella. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • Mozzarella String Cheese
  • Italian Bread Crumbs (1 1/2 cup)
  • Eggs (2 medium to large)
  • Milk (1 tablespoon)
  • Basil (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Oregano (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Vegetable Oil (1 1/2 cup)

Instructions:

  1. In a medium mixing bowl whisk eggs and milk together.
  2. In a separate bowl mix together breadcrumbs, basil, and oregano.
  3. Roll each string cheese stick in the egg mixture then roll them in the breadcrumbs.
  4. Repeat step #3, by rolling the breadcrumb covered string cheese in the egg mixture again and then the breadcrumbs. (Coating the mozzarella twice will ensure the breading sticks are coated thoroughly) *You can always add more breadcrumbs if the ones in your bowl start to clump.
  5. Place the coated mozzarella in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. Heat oil in a skillet and fry coated sticks for 1 minute per side. ( When they are golden brown they are done)
  7. Remove from oil and let drain.
  8. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
