Italian Fried Mozzarella Sticks

Fresh made mozzarella sticks, a great appetizer and snack anytime. Either bake or fry. These are easy to make and the kids will love you for it.

Place on foil lined cookie sheet and freeze till solid

Dip in milk then shake in bread crumbs

1 whole mozzarella ball (one pound or more)
Italian flavored bread crumbs
1/4 cup grating cheese
1 teaspoon minced garlic
12 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup milk or half and half (I use half and half its thicker and holds crumbs better. You also can use fat free)
1 large gallon size baggie
Slice mozzarella into long rectangles with a sharp knife. Cut two to three inches long. Dip in milk. In large baggie, place bread crumbs, seasonings, in the bag. Shake mozzarella pieces in the bag. Then place on a foil lined cookie sheet and freeze.
When frozen solid then you can proceed to bake or fry. Place in an oil lined cookie sheet and bake in 410 degrees oven until golden brown or fry in deep fryer till brown. Serve with marinara sauce.
