(Recipe from | photo from me!)

Makes 6-8 servings (~56 sticks)


1 1/2 cups Italian-style dried breadcrumbs
1 1/3 cups freshly grated Parmesan
1 teaspoon salt
2 (16-ounce) blocks pasteurized mozzarella cut into 4 by 1/2-inch sticks
4 large eggs, beaten to blend
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
4 cups Marinara Sauce, recipe follows


> Stir the bread crumbs, 1 cup of Parmesan and 1 teaspoon of salt in a medium bowl to blend.
> Dip the cheese in the eggs to coat completely and allow the excess egg to drip back into the bowl.
> Coat the cheese in the bread crumb mixture, patting to adhere and coat completely.
> Place the cheese sticks on a baking sheet.
> Repeat dipping the cheese sticks in the egg and bread crumb mixture to coat a second time.
> Cover and freeze until frozen, about 2 hours and up to 2 days.
> Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.
> Working in batches, fry the cheese until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Transfer the fried cheese to plates.
> Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and serve with the Marinara Sauce (see recipe below)

** TIP: I used store bought string cheese instead of mozzarella block and it worked great but next time I won’t freeze it before frying so the cheese melts more.
