Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

8 ounces string cheese sticks, at room temperature
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Salt and pepper
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
Extra-light olive oil, for deep frying
Bottled chunky marianara sauce, for dipping

Instructions

Cut cheese sticks into thirds. Place flour on a plate and season it with salt and pepper. Put the egg in a small bowl. Place bread crumbs on a plate. Add cheese pieces to flour and toss to coat. Dip in egg and roll in bread crumbs. Arrange breaded cheese in a single layer on a tray or baking sheet. Let stand for 15-30 minutes. Pour oil into a large skillet to a depth of 1 inch and heat over medium high heat. When oil is hot, carefully drop cheese pieces in, a few at a time and fry until golden, or about 30 seconds. Remove from oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Serve with your favorite chunky marinara sauce for dipping.
