And did I say my word yet??….E.A.S.Y. You know I love some easy cookin.
Unwrap individual cheese sticks or rounds. Whisk an egg in one bowl, and in another place panko seasoned breadcrumbs. Dip the cheese into the egg and then press the breadcrumbs onto the cheese.
Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat until shimmery, then add breaded cheese and fry until golden on each side. Serve hot, with marinara sauce on the side for dipping.
With the egg and the breading it’s not exactly the healthiest snack, but without a doubt a surefire way to be popular with your peeps (my popularity lasted about 10 minutes until all the mozzarella was consumed.) I shamelessly cook my way to my teenager’s heart. I buy his love and affection with fried mozzarella, it’s true.
