How to Make Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

 I have loved mozzarella sticks for as long as I can remember. My dad loves them too and it use to be our special treat to share. I have passed down the mozzarella stick love to my daughter and in fact, mozzarella sticks are on the short list of things she will actually eat, so we have started making them at home. They are REALLY easy and really good.
You will need:
String cheese sticks (Or a brick of mozzarella)
Flour (In its own bowl)
two eggs, slightly beaten (In its own bowl)
Italian bread crumbs (In its own bowl, make sure they are Italian or there won't be any seasoning)

First open your string cheese from their wrappers, or cut your mozzarella brick into strips. I always cut my string cheese in half, I think it makes easier to manage cheese sticks. Coat the cheese sticks in flour, then egg and finally the bread crumbs. Make sure they are good and coated or too much cheese with ooze out.
 Fry in hot oil until they become crispy. Enjoy hot! The longer you let them cool down, the less melty the cheese inside will be.
They aren't the best thing for you, but hey, they sure are delicious!

I remember watching you and Seth make these when we were roommates and thinking you were completely insane. And then I remember eating them with you when we were neighbors and realizing that you were still insane, but that you use your powers for good and delicious and not for evil. :)

Yum!! I've recently re-discovered my deep fryer love (homemade donuts, anyone?), and mozz sticks are one of my all-time favorite bad-for-you foods. Can't wait to try these, and they look so easy!!
