PW's Mozzarella Sticks
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 TBSP milk
1 cup Panko Japanese bread crumbs
1/2 TBSP parsley
Unwrap string cheese. Cut in half.
Put flour in small bowl/plate.
Mix egg and milk in a small bowl, stirring with fork.
Add a few shakes of salt (from the salt shaker) to a small bowl or plate holding the Panko crumbs.
Roll cheese through flour to coat.
Dip flour-coated cheese in egg/milk mixture so that egg/milk is absorbed into flour coating.
Roll through Panko crumbs to coat.
When finished coating, place prepped cheese sticks in freezer for 20-30 min (to flash freeze).
Fry in 1-2" canola oil until golden brown. Allow to dry on paper-towel.
Serve with marinara sauce.
Makes 16 mozzarella sticks.
Comments from the cook: I found this recipe on The Pioneer Woman's website, and INSTANTLY knew that these would become a favorite at our house. Brian loves cheese sticks more than most appetizers, so we gave them a try! They turned out AMAZINGLY, and we've made them multiple times since and have not been disappointed!
