Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

Vennard used to have really awesome Mozzarella's probably where I gained my "freshmen 15"! When I saw Giada De Laurentiis making them on the Food Network, it brought back all those yummy memories! So I started looking around for recipes, and have kinda come up with one that is taken from a blog called skinny taste, but with some changes added. I also have Giada's recipe, I will try to post that one as well!

Mozzarella Sticks

10 Tablespoons Italian Style Bread Crumbs
12 sticks part-skim reduced sodium mozzarella sticks
2 Tablespoons flour
1 egg (mixed with some cream, milk or water to make an egg wash)
3 Tablespoons parmesan cheese
2 Tablespoons dried parsley

Place your breadcrumbs, parsley and parmesan cheese in one bowl(mixed together), your egg wash in another and your flour in another. First dip your mozzarella stick in the flour, dusting off excess, then into the egg wash and finally into the breadcrumb mixture. Repeat until all mozzarella sticks are covered. Place in freezer for one hour, this will help so the cheese doesn't seep out while frying. Take out of freezer and fry in olive oil that has been heated. Enjoy with Marinara sauce!
