Recipe of the Week

  •  Mozzarella Sticks

    ¾ cup Italian-style dried breadcrumbs

    2/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
    ½  teaspoon salt
    8 oz. mozzarella sticks, cut in half
    2 large eggs, beaten to blend
    1 cup vegetable oil
    Marinara Sauce

    Day 1
    Stir the bread crumbs, Parmesan and 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.

    Day 2

    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 Parmesan cheese and serve with Marinara Sauce.
