 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 c Flour
  • 3 lg Eggs
  • 1 c Bread crumbs
  • 1/2 ts Garlic powder
  • 1/2 ts Oregano
  • 1/2 ts Cumin, ground
  • 1 pn Salt and pepper
  • 8 oz Marinara sauce,
  • -chilled
  • Vegetable oil


Cut the mozzarella into sticks a bit more than about 1/4 inch thick and
about 1 1/2 inches long. Coat the sticks with flour, shaking off excess.
Combine the bread crumbs and seasonings in a flat dish. Beat the eggs and
place in a separate bowl.

Coat the sticks by dipping them in the egg and then in the bread crumbs.
The coating on the first stick should be fairly dry when you finish the
last stick. Repeat with another dip in the egg and then in the bread

Deep-fry the coated sticks in oil for about 3 to 4 minutes until the
coating is cooked. Fry in batches, keeping the finished ones warm in the
oven. Serve with chilled marinara sauce or salsa.


* Fried mozzarella sticks with marinara Use your imagination when
choosing spices. The spices listed here are just a suggestion.

* Be careful when frying, as some sticks split open when they are done,
leaving lots of cheese in your frying oil. You may need more egg or bread
crumbs, depending on how many sticks you have and how thick you coat them.

: Difficulty: moderate (frying skill required).
: Time: 10 minutes preparation, 5 minutes cooking.
: Precision: approximate measurement OK.
