How to Make Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

Cut your cheese into strips about two inches long and about half an inch wide on both sides. Keeping them fairly uniform isn’t really important, but it helps make them look fantastic in a pile.

Beat three or four eggs in a bowl.

Dip your cheese sticks into the eggs, then into the bread crumbs, and again into the eggs, and again into the bread crumbs. Really, you should do this at least twice but a few extra times just adds additional layers of breading.

Now put them in the freezer for at least ten minutes.

Once frozen, the ideal way to cook your mozzarella sticks is in light vegetable oil, either in a deep fryer or a cast iron frying pan.

But you can also cook them in the oven or even on a regular frying pan with a thin layer of oil.
