I am supposed to make homemade deep fried mozz sticks for a dinner saturday night and I don't know how! Any help?
I did a quick search for you and found these recipes. They don't look too hard, and don't require that many ingredients!
FRIED MOZZARELLA STICKS (from cooks.com)
1 lb. Mozzarella
1 c. seasoned bread crumbs
Light vegetable oil
Cut cheese into 2 inch long, 1/2 inch wide sticks. Dip cheese into beaten eggs and then into bread crumbs two times. Freeze for about 10 minutes (can be overnight). Fry until golden brown (about 2 minutes on each side).

I have been playing around with this recipe since I was a teen. I love to make these for friends and they say they are better than the restaurant version. Stacey
40 minutes 20 mins prep
16 ounces mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley, crushed
1/3 cup cornstarch
3 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
2/3 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Mix together the eggs and water, set aside.
combine the Italian bread crumbs, garlic powder, dried oregano and dried parsley.
salt and pepper to taste.
in a separate container, mix flour and cornstarch.
cut mozzarella cheese into any desired shape, rectangle strips are traditional.
One at a time, dip mozarella slices into the egg mixture, then the breadcrumbs, then the flour.
fry sticks at 375 F until golden brown and serve with desired dipping sauce.
Hope they turn out delicious for you! :D

You know, I have always been curious about this. Would it be possible to use the String Cheese sticks that are sold in the grocery store? I can't see why not, and it seems like it would be much easier than cutting the sticks from a block of mozzarella! Sorrento makes really good cheese sticks too! Hmmm...might have to try it. Thanks for the recipes LRL!!
I don't know about the string cheese but I know that you probably wouldn't want to use fresh mozzerella. String cheese tastes similar to the non fresh mozzerella so let us know how it works.

I used to make these when I was in high school for a snack after school.
Take the string cheese, either whole or cut in half to make them shorter if you want to use a small pot. Lightly coat in flour, then dip in beaten egg, then roll in breadcrumbs. Fry in hot oil until golden brown, turning once.
The flour is very important, if you don't use it the cheese seems to ooze out while cooking.

Thank you all so much, the dinner was delayed so I'll be using your suggestions this weekend, I think I might go with the string cheese but I will try the others too!
