Mozzarella Sticks

Mozzarella Sticks

1 pound mozzarella sticks (string cheese) or brick mozzarella
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups Italian bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2/3 cup flour
1/3 cup cornstarch
Vegetable oil (for deep frying)

If using brick-form mozzarella, cut the cheese into finger-size sticks.

Beat the eggs with water and set aside.

Mix bread crumbs, garlic salt and Italian seasoning and set aside.

Blend flour with cornstarch and set aside.

Heat vegetable oil to 360 degrees F.

Dip cheese in flour, then in egg wash and then coat with bread crumbs. Place carefully in hot oil and fry until golden. This takes just a few seconds so watch carefully. When golden, remove from hot oil and drain.

Serve with favorite spaghetti sauce.
