Yummy and cheap! Vegetarian and almost Vegan.
I really love mozzarella sticks, but the price and grease keep me from getting them often. Also I don't like ordering such things when I can't be sure it's cooked away from meat. I took the basic way to make yummy sticks and made it a little healthier. Enjoy!

I will add pictures of the process next time I make this.

You Will Need

  • Step 1

    First gather your ingredients:
    *8 mozzarella cheese sticks or vegan cheese sticks. (or 4 sticks sliced in half)
    *1/2 cup bread crumbs
    *1/2 cup flour
    *1/4 cup soymilk
    *Egg alternative (2 eggs)
    *Oil

    Step 2

    First things first unwrap you cheese sticks. Put you bread crumbs and flour in 2 SEPARATE shallow bowls or pie pans.

    Now is the time to heat your oil (1 inch) in a wok or saucepan with large brim to med. heat.

  • Step 3

    Mix together your egg alternative equivalent of 2 eggs and the 1/4 soymilk. Put this into a shallow bowl.

    Step 4

    Now the fun part!
    Take a cheese stick and dip it into the egg + milk mixture, allow the excess liquid to drip off and immediately put the cheese stick into your flour bowl. Roll the cheese stick around until it is completely covered in flour. Now Dip it in the egg + milk mixture AGAIN this time you roll it in the breadcrumbs.

    (To make thinner cheese sticks slice in half prior to dipping.)

    Step 5

    Once your cheese stick is covered in the following order
    (egg+milk, flour, egg+milk, breadcrumbs) place the stick in the hot oil.

    Be sure to lay the stick down away from you, this will ensure you don't get splattered with hot oil. (very painful)

  • Step 6

    Once your sticks are golden brown or the cheese begins melting through remove from oil. If you have paper towels blot the extra grease away.

    Enjoy~

    If you would like some marinara sauce to dip your sticks in you can use spaghetti sauce or process/grind a can of Italian tomatoes.

I'm going to have to try this! I LOVE these but they are expensive in the restaurant and less for what you pay for! Happy

TIP: make sure to freeze the mozzarella sticks at least 8hrs prior to frying to prevent the mozzarella sticks from melting. Buen Provecho <3
