Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

8 oz whole milk Mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup flour
2 extra large eggs
Freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups dry breadcrumbs
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil


1 - Cut the Mozzarella into 1/2-inch slices and then into 1/2-inch strips.

2 - Place the flour in a bowl. In another bowl, beat the eggs, salt and pepper thoroughly with a fork. Place the bread crumbs in a third bowl.

3 - Dip the mozzarella strips in flour, then in beaten eggs. Dredge thoroughly in breadcrumbs, making sure the cheese is thoroughly coated with crumbs so that it does not ooze in frying. Arrange strips in single layer on a large platter lined with waxed paper. Chill for at least 1 hour (chilling will prevent the breadcrumb coating from falling off when frying).

4 - In a 12-inch skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Fry the Mozzarella in two batches, turning once, until lightly golden on both sides. Drain on paper towels.

5 - To serve, arrange on a platter and serve immediately
