On Christmas Eve we decided to give these a try. They are so delicious at restaurants and I wanted to see if we could reproduce the taste. Wow!!! These were so gooey and delicious. We fried ours, but I bet you could bake them and still have excellent results, I will try that next time. A 16 oz. brick of cheese made 20 sticks. Serve with a marinara sauce. Wouldn't these be fun for your next party?
Husband Rating: 5 stars
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
16 oz mozzarella cheese
Oil for frying
Slice brick of cheese into 20 equal strips. In a shallow bowl beat eggs. In another bowl stir together the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and garlic salt to blend. Dip the cheese in the egg mixture, then dip into the bread crumb mixture. Pat with your fingers to get the crumbs to stick. Place the cheese sticks on a baking sheet. Repeat the dipping process in the egg and breading mixture to coat the cheese a second time. Cover and freeze for at least 2 hours, but not more than 2 days. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Fry the cheese until golden brown, about 1 minute on each side. Serve with marinara sauce.
Here's what the cheese looks like right before I put it in the freezer:
