Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Like I stated in my last post, this "simple snack" is easy to prepare. While the prep time is a bit longer than the actual cook time, it is worth it!  Here are my following ingredients:  panko bread crumbs and mozzarella cheese sticks...



I lined the cheese sticks on a cutting board...



With a sharp knife, I cut each stick in half...


I set up my "dunking station," which consists of flour, beaten eggs, and panko breadcrumbs...



Dunk each "stick" into each station, and place it aside on a plate (paper plate in my case lol). You can put the plate in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before frying, but I prefer to place my "sticks" in the freezer uncovered...



With the "sticks" frozen, the cheese melts slower when frying.  In a frying pan with an oil of your choosing (vegetable oil in my case) on medium-high heat, fry each "stick" until golden brown.  I placed each "stick" on a frying rack so the excess oil can drip off...



Accompanied by your favorite marinara sauce, this "simple snack" is oh-so-easy and DELICIOUS!  Try not eat so many before your guests arrive haha!



Enjoy!
