Well, you’re either going to love me or hate me for this. Mozzarella Bites you can make at home with just 10 minutes of active cooking time. Crispy on the outside, ooey-gooey on the inside. Did I mention they’re super easy and practically fool proof? Sorry not sorry my friend, you HAVE to try these!!


Ingredients:

  • 6 mozzarella string cheese sticks, each cut into 6 bites
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 2 cups gluten-free bread crumbs
  • salt
  • marinara sauce

Instructions:


  1. Add flour to one bowl, whisk together eggs and water in another bowl, then add bread crumbs to another bowl. Season bread crumbs with salt then stir to combine.
  2. Working with 4 bites at a time, roll in the flour, tapping any excess off, then add to the egg mixture and use a fork to coat. Transfer bites to bread crumbs then use your fingers to coat each bite. Add bites back into the egg mixture then use a fork to coat, and then transfer back to the bread crumbs to create a double coating. Place bites onto a large plate then repeat with remaining cheese and refrigerate for 20 minutes or until breading is set.
  3. Add enough oil to a small, heavy-bottomed pan to come 2” up the sides. Turn the heat to slightly above medium then heat until oil reaches 365 - 370 degrees. Fry bites in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pan, until golden brown, 30 seconds or so. Scoop bites onto a paper towel lined plate then sprinkle with salt and serve immediately with warmed marinara sauce.


Notes:


  • Keep bites warm by placing on a cooling rack set atop a baking sheet and placing inside a 275 degree oven.
