Mozzarella Sticks

Mozzarella Sticks | by Life Tastes Good are homemade, double breaded, and delicious! #appetizer #snack #Italian
Mozzarella Sticks - Madison had a craving for Mozzarella Sticks. I suggested she bake up a healthier version instead of frying, and I shared a recipe with her to try. 

That recipe bombed! Let me tell you it was BAD! Mozzarella sticks are meant for frying - it's true! 


So Madison set out to fry up some 'real' mozzarella sticks! We don't have a fryer, so I advised she use an electric skillet to ensure she get the right temperature of the oil. If the oil isn't hot enough when you fry, the food just ends up super greasy. 


She double breaded the cheese and went to town making the best mozzarella sticks!! yummmm. These were easy to make in the skillet and super delicious!


The electric skillet I have is super versatile. It is the Aroma Housewares Super Pot with Grill Plate. I love to use this pot for all sorts of things, but I originally purchased it to use while traveling. One summer we were spending 10 days in a hotel for an equestrian event, and this pot saved us from having to eat out every single day!
