Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

This recipe came from a coworker. We were discussing ways to make our favorite items from a restaurant and how to make them cheaper at home. I know this economy is affecting everyone and cooking a home has been great for our budget and it has helped with my diet. This recipe isn’t super great for a diet but you can make it in small batches for better portions.
My coworker made this recipe over and over when she was little to get it perfect and I have to say she got it. The cheese melts perfectly and they are so crispy on the outside.

Restaurant Style Mozzarella Sticks
1 package of Polly-O Whole Milk Mozzarella
1 cup of Italian Style bread crumbs
1 egg
Olive Oil for frying

1. Slice the mozzarella cheese into what shape (slice, cube, any shape you choose).
2. In separate bowls, place the bread crumbs and egg. Make an egg wash with the egg. Use a fork to beat the egg until smooth. If the egg wash looks too thick, you can add a bit water to thin it out a little bit.
3. Dip the mozzarella in the egg wash and thoroughly coat.
4. Take the mozzarella and coat in the bread crumbs. Make sure the mozzarella is completely covered (unless you want your cheese to melt in the pan).
5. Place the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place only enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Once the oil is at the correct temperature, fry the mozzarella until golden brown on both sides.
6. Serve and Enjoy.

Until Next Time,
