Fried Mozzarella Sticks - 365 Ways to Wok
1 (12 oz) package part-skim mozzarella
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs
2 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1 cup prepared spaghetti or marinara sauce, heated
Cut mozzarella into 3 1/2 x 1/2 inch strips. In a bowl, combine eggs and Parmesan cheese. Beat until blended. Place bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Dip mozzarella into egg mixture and then into bread crumbs to coat.
In a wok, heat oil over medium-high heat until temperature measures 350 degrees on a deep-frying thermometer. Fry mozzarella sticks in batches with out crowding, turning until golden brown, 3-4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon or skimmer and drain on paper towels. Serve with marinara sauce on the side for dipping.
