Fried Mozzarella

Image

You know, sometimes, there comes a day when you just want to fry some cheese.  When those days come along, I say go for it!

What you will need:

  • Olive Oil or Coconut oil
  • 8 oz Fresh Mozzarella (dried with a paper towel) and cut into bite size pieces
  • Salt
  • 3 eggs
  • Coconut Flour or All purpose Flour
  • Gluten Free Breadcrumbs or Panko Breadcrumbs
  • Optional additions: Homemade Marinara, fresh basil, fried bell peppers.

How it’s done:

  1. Dredge the mozzarella in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs (I like them really crunchy, so I do this step twice) Set them aside.
  2. Heat oil on medium in a pan.  Once oil is hot add the mozzarella and lightly brown all sides.  Takes about 2 min. 
  3. Serve immediately
