Mozzarella sticks are coated in a simple batter and quickly deep fried to golden perfection. Try dipping them in a marinara sauce!
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 1/2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 1 quart oil for deep frying
- 1 (16 ounce) package mozzarella cheese sticks
In a small bowl, mix the eggs and water.
Mix the bread crumbs and garlic salt in a medium bowl.
In a medium bowl, blend the flour and cornstarch.
In a large, heavy saucepan, heat the oil to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
One at a time, moisten each mozzarella stick in the flour mixture, then the egg mixture, then in the bread crumbs, and finally into the oil. Fry until golden brown, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat and drain on paper towels.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
