Our kids love fried mozzarella. When ever there is a special occasion and we go out to eat, our children beg for the fried mozzarella appetizers. So to solve their craving for breaded and fried cheese, we make them our home made “fried” mozzarella.
- String cheese
- Bread crumbs
- milk – 1/4 cup or less – just enough to wet the cheese
- marinara, or spaghetti sauce, or ranch, or dip to your liking
Carefully cut the string cheese into bite size pieces – You could even leave them full length,but small pieces make it fun for the kiddos
At this point the kid’s can join in – have them place the cheese into a bowl of milk, about a 1/4 cup
After a quick soaking in milk, gently place the cheese bits into a bowl of bread crumbs. Have them gently pat the bread crumbs onto the cheese. Remove the breaded cheese and gently place on a cooking sheet.
Bake at 425 degrees
for 6-8 mins depending on oven
Gently press cheese for softness
