Crispy Mozzarella Sticks
Guaranteed to be crunchier than your favorite.
- 6 cups vegetable oil
- 1 pound mozzarella
- 2 cups panko
- ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- 3 large eggs
- 3 tablespoons whole milk
- 1½ teaspoons garlic powder
- 1½ teaspoons onion powder
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- Kosher salt
- Spicy Marinara Sauce
Slice mozzarella into 1/2 inch slices then cut those slices into sticks.
Crack eggs into a bowl and beat until smooth.
Pour 1/2 cup flour onto a plate.
In a shallow dish, mix panko with all the herbs and seasonings.
To bread: evenly coat a stick with flour, then with egg wash, then the panko. Then do it again. This double coating will ensure a super crispy mozz stick.
Freeze for 1 hour.
Heat oil in a large pot until shimmering.
Fry mozz sticks 3 at a time for 2 minutes or until golden.
Serve with marinara and enjoy! 😀
