Here's a quick way to enjoy a classic restaurant appetizer favorite.
EASY FRIED CHEESE
8 ounces of Mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2 inch by 2 inch slices
2 C Italian bread crumbs
1/4 C shredded Parmesan cheese
Peanut oil, for frying
Marinara sauce, for dipping (see my Marinara Sauce recipe under the Basics tab)
Mix the bread crumbs with the Parmesan cheese. Dip the cheese sticks in the egg mixture, then in the bread crumb mixture, being sure to get some to stick. Repeat this process, making sure no cheese shows through. Freeze at least an hour.
Preheat the oil to 350 degrees and drop in the cheese. Fry only 2-4 minutes or until golden brown. Keep in a 200 degree oven until all cheese is fried.
