Twice-Fried Cheese Sticks


I love cheese and most anything fried. (Just being honest!) So when I was stranded in the kitchen the other day (and yes, I do mean stranded!) I decided to whip up these little babies. They're quick and easy, and they taste great! 
The reason for frying them twice is that once doesn't seem to get the outer crust thick enough. The extra frying doesn't hurt anything, it just makes the outer crust thicker and a little more crispy. One batch makes 6 sticks (1 - 2 servings), so you'll want to double or triple it as needed!

You'll need:
3 mozzarella cheese sticks, halved
1/2 cup Italian style bread crumbs
1 egg
1/2 t. Italian seasoning
1-1/2 cup veggie oil


Pour the oil into a small skillet and turn it on medium flame.
Start by slicing your cheese sticks in half and set aside. Pour the Italian crumbs into a bowl and set aside too. Beat the egg in another bowl with the Italian seasoning. 

Roll the cheese sticks in the egg mixture one at a time.

Then drudge them in the crumbs. 

Gently and carefully place the sticks in the hot oil. Fry for 30 - 60 seconds on each side or until golden brown.

Pull out and let sit for one minute on a paper lined towel.

Roll the fried cheese sticks in egg again.

Drudge them through the crumbs once again. This is the last roll, so you might want to get them fairly thick with crumbs.

And then fry in the oil for about 20 seconds on each side. Watch closely as they get really crispy fast!

Serve hot with seasoned sauce. 

Enjoy!
