Fried cheese sticks

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

These can be frozen overnight if you prefer. Serve with marinara sauce.

What you’ll need:

1 lb mozzarella cheese
3 eggs, beaten
1 c seasoned bread crumbs (you can also use finely crushed plain croutons)
Oil to fry in

Cut cheese into strips that are approximately 2” long and ½” wide. Dip the cheese into eggs, then crumbs, then eggs, then crumbs. Place on a cookie sheet lined with foil and sprayed with non stick cooking spray. Freeze for at least 10 minutes. Fry in hot oil 2 - 4 minutes until golden brown. Makes about 15 cheese sticks.

Cost:
mozzarella - $3.49/block
eggs - $1.09/ dozen
dry bread crumbs - $0.99
Total - $4.75
