  • 16

    pieces String Cheese, Removed From Wrappers

  • 1/2

    cups All-purpose Flour

    Tablespoons Milk

    Tablespoon Dried Parsley Flakes

  • Canola Oil, For Frying

Directions

Slice string cheese pieces in half, for a total of 32 pieces. Place flour in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and milk. In another separate bowl, combine panko bread crumbs with parsley flakes. TO ASSEMBLE: One by one, roll mozzarella sticks in flour, then dunk in egg/milk mixture, then place in panko crumbs. Use your hand to sweep crumbs all over the mozzarella stick. Gently remove and place on a tray or cookie sheet. Repeat until all mozzarella sticks are coated. ***Place tray in freezer for 20 to 30 minutes to flash freeze.*** TO COOK: Heat 1 1/2 inches canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add mozzarella sticks 8 at a time. Watch closely and turn over to evenly brown, cooking less than 2 minutes. Do not allow cheese to bubble and leak. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve immediately with warm marinara sauce.
