Ingredients

  • 16 oz block of Mozzarella Cheese

  • 3

    oz pork rinds/cracklings (Make your own cracklings--recipe in Beyond Bacon or order quality pork rinds here)

  • 1

    tsp dried parsley

  • 3/4

    tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2

    cup coconut flour

  • 1

    tsp salt

  • 1/2

    tsp black pepper

  • 2

    large eggs

  • 1

    Tbsp water or coconut milk

Directions

Cut the mozzarella cheese into 12 (3/4-1" thick) sticks Grind the pork rinds/cracklings into a food processor or chopper until crumbs are formed. On a plate combine the crumbs, parsley, and garlic powder. On another plate combine the coconut flour, salt, and black pepper. In a medium shallow bowl or dish whisk the eggs and water (or coconut milk) until thoroughly combine. Coat the mozzarella in the coconut flour and shake off the excess. Coat the mozzarella in the egg mixture and then into the crumb mixture. Be sure to coat evenly on all side of the mozzarella. Repeat with the remaining mozzarella sticks. In a large cast iron skillet heat enough coconut oil to cover the pan 1/2" high over medium high heat. Add the mozzarella sticks, in batches, cook for about 30 seconds on one side or until golden brown. Flip the sticks over and cook for another 15-20 seconds. Place on a paper towel lined plate to drain. Serve with marinara sauce.
