I love cheese! So what's better than fried cheese? Cheesecake, but it's not time for dessert yet.
My daughter gave me a recipe for these yummy cheese sticks, they are incredible. I used olive oil for a healthier fat, reduced fat mozzarella sticks, homemade bread crumbs from some stale bread I put in the freezer and good eggs from my friend Letitia's pastured chickens. So, really, how unhealthy were they?
Here's the recipe:
1 lb. mozzarella sticks or chunk cut into 1/4 inch slices
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup flour all purpose, white spelt or rice might work too but I didn't try it
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/2 cup olive oil
I had to make my crumbs by grinding the bread in the food processor, add the seasoning too.
Dip each stick in egg,
Heat the oil in a small fry pan.
Cook one minute per side.
Serve with marinara sauce or tomato soup.
