I had to post something for my new friend Moo.
Mozzarella Milanese - Cheese Sticks With Marinara Dipping Sauce. These are so easy to make. Absolutely delicious and fairly low calorie considering what they are. Mozzarella is made with skimmed milk so its lower in fat than other cheeses, and the use of egg whites and olive oil also helps.
1 lb of Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup of flour
2 eggs beaten (egg white substitute)
1/2 cup of dried bread crumbs (I use Panko)
1 Tablespoon dried parsley flakes (optional)
1/2 cup of olive oil
Cut cheese into slices about 1 inch by 4 inches (typically the length of the loaf of cheese). Roll cheese in flour then dip in egg and roll in bread crumbs (Panko are Japanese coarse breadcrumbs, they give a wonderful crispiness and texture, but any bread crumbs will suffice.) Make sure cheese is thoroughly coated in mixture. Heat oil over medium heat until hot, then add cheese to oil carefully taking care not to spatter. Cook about 2 minutes or until they start to brown. Drain onto paper towels. Serve with Marinara sauce for dipping.
