Italian Breadcrumbs Olive or Grape Seed Oil Salt | Flour | Eggs Mozzarella String Cheese Marinara Sauce
Prepare 3 bowls, one with flour, one with beaten eggs, and one for the bread crumbs. Heat oil in a skillet, add bread crumbs and stir continuously until a dark golden brown.
Thoroughly coat the first mozzarella cheese stick in flour. Swish in the egg, then coat with bread crumbs. Tap off any extra bread crumbs before transferring to a lined baking sheet.
Repeat to coat each cheese stick, placing them slightly apart on the baking sheet. Bake in a preheated oven for 9-11 minutes or right as you notice cheese starting to bubble.
Let cool for just a minute or two then serve warm with a side of marinara sauce and ranch for dipping!
