Breaded Mozzarella Sticks

Ingredients

inch A block of Mozzarella, cut into ½ strips OR string cheese -- halved
2 eggs (beaten)
2 cups bread crumbs (season with black pepper or herbs for bett

Preparation

1
Dip the Mozzarella sticks first in the flour, coating well. Next dip the floured sticks in egg, making sure it’s well coated, and then breadcrumbs. Coat again in egg and once more in breadcrumbs. You really want a thick coating of breadcrumbs, neatly pressed in all around the stick of cheese.
2
Once you’ve coated all the sticks, chill them in the fridge/freezer for about 30 mins to firm them up. Heat up about 1/2 cup of oil in a skillet and once hot (but not steaming), gently drop in the chilled sticks and cook them over medium heat till the coating is nice and golden. Remove, drain and eat them while the cheese is warm.
3
Actually, though these mozzarella sticks are prefereed to be eaten warm, while the cheese is all sticky and gooey, I like them cool as well.
