Mozzarella cheese sticks are dipped in a tasty beer batter, then deep fried. Be careful when you take that first bite of hot, gooey cheese!
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 pinch ground white pepper
- 1 cup beer
- 4 cups safflower oil
- 1 egg white
- 1 pound mozzarella cheese sticks
In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and white pepper. Gradually pour in beer. Whisk briskly. Cover and allow the mixture to stand 90 minutes.
In a large, deep skillet, heat safflower oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Whip the egg white into the batter. Dip mozzarella cheese sticks into the batter.
With a slotted metal spoon, place coated cheese sticks a few at a time into the hot oil. Fry 2 1/2 to 3 minutes, until crisp and golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
