Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
|Mozarella cheese||1 Pound, cut in 1' wide by 4" long blocks|
|Italian seasoned bread crumbs||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
crack the eggs and place them in a bowl, wisk vigorously for about 30 seconds. make sure that the whites and the yolks have been well blended. if not whisk a little more. this will be your egg wash.
pour your bread crumbs into a large bowl.
place the Cheese stick into the egg wash and roll it around until well coated. immediately remove from the wash and place into the bread crumbs.(note: the first coating will have a tendency to slide right off) so you will want to compress the crumbs around theCheese stick and the place it back into the egg wash and coat again. remove from the wash and place it back into the bread crumbs. keep repeating this procedure until your cheese sticks has been well coated and has a thick crust on it.
Place the Sticks onto a drying rack, or something that has holes in it to get an even air flow around the sticks for proper drying.
Repeat with remaining Sticks.
Once the sticks are well coated and has a nice breading on them, place them in the freezer for 24hrs.
