Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

(originally made 6/2012)

Jake once told MIL he liked string cheese.   Now every time she sees us, she brings an industrial size size box of them.    Since I had oil heated to 350º and some extra time, I decided to give this a try.  It's been all over Pinterest and Foodgawker and seemed simple enough.

Standard breading rules- into the seasoned flour, then beaten egg and then panko bread crumbs.   Then pop them into the freezer for 20 to 30 mins.  DO NOT SKIMP ON THIS STEP!   I did, and we had some cheese loss.    Fry until golden brown and then drain on a rack or paper towels.   The end result of the ones that made it was a crispy, yummy exterior and a nice melty cheese middle.    We don't fry often, but definitely would do up more if I had oil going.     Or work on a baked version.
