Mozzarella Sticks

You can make a batch of these and store in the freezer. Serve it your favorite marinara sauce for a delicious gooey snack. The first time I made mozzarella sticks, I made a mistake of frying it immediately after breading, so the cheese oozed out its coating and made a mess in the pan.

Don’t get too excited like I did, wait at least an hour after you put the mozzarella sticks in the freezer before frying and same goes after you fry it. Wait a few minutes before biting into one of the cheese sticks, as it can be really hot.

Patience has its reward…a delicious gooey treat.
