Marvelous Mozzarella at its Best!!!

So many of us love Mozzarella Sticks with Marinara sauce . However, I bet you a million dollars that you have never made it on your own. Its so funny how we always order them in a restaurant ( and they are probably frozen),but never think about making this yummy treat at home. At our events we use a variety of cheese cut into funky shapes and serve them as a pass around hors d'oeuvre. At home, this classic can be served as a snack while watching TV with the family, as a appetizer at a dinner party or get together or as a side to a fabulous pasta meal. Allow me to inspire you to make this delicious treat. It is very easy to prepare and a big crowd pleaser.


1 pound of Mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup of flour

1 egg beaten

1 cup of olive oil

1/2 cup of bread crumbs ( seasoned Italian)

4 tbs. parmesan cheese

2 tsp. Italian seasoning

A small batch of Marinara sauce


Cut cheese into desired shape. Add the parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning to the already seasoned bread crumbs. Roll cheese in flour, then dip in beaten egg, then bread crumb mixture. Heat no more than 2 inches of oil. Fry for 20 to 30 seconds or until golden brown. Serve with your own homemade Marinara sauce.
