Weekend Splurge: Homemade Mozzarella Sticks


   I know the weekend is long over. But I want to tell you about this delicious snack we had along with the hot chocolate in my previous post this weekend. This recipe isn't entirely my own. A friend said they were delicious and I just had to try them and I found an amazing recipe thanks to her! I did change it just a teentzy bit. Here's the recipe:

I cut it down a little to suit my purposes. So this recipe yields about 14 pieces.

Soft Cheese Dough Ingredients:

1 (8 oz.) Solid Cream Cheese Stick
 4 oz. of Mozzarella Cheese
1 Package Haolam String Cheese (6)
2 Tablespoons Parmesan Cheese
1/2 Cup Flour

Breading:

3 Eggs
Garlic Powder, Salt, Pepper and Basil to taste.
  1/2 Cup Cornflake Crumbs
                                              
Some oil for frying
                                              
Ketchup or Marinara Sauce for Dipping

Combine the cheese dough ingredients. Mix them together till soft and combined completely. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours and then take a little dough and put the string cheese in the center. Encase the string cheese in a nice amount of dough to form a long medium sized rod. One that is done put those pieces into the refrigerator for another hour or so. Prepare the egg mixture. Put the string cheese encased in dough into the corn flake crumbs then the egg and then the corn flake crumbs again. Bring a pan with amount of oil to your liking to a simmer then turn it down to a small-medium flame. Drop the breaded cheese dough into the pan carefully. Fry them on both sides till they are golden brown. Serve with some ketchup or marinara sauce to dip mozzarella sticks into.

I have tried many recipes for mozzarella sticks since they are usually so amazing in most dairy restaurants. None came out they way this did- cheesy and perfectly awesome!

Some tips: You can double or triple this recipe if you are serving it to alot more people.

This recipe is great finger food. Can be served as a snack like I did or as an appetizer or side dish along with a meal. I'm pretty sure this would also make a great dairy party food if they were made a little smaller and wrapped in some sort of paper to avoid getting people dirty at all.

What treats do you enjoy on the weekend?
