    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    You'll never buy frozen mozzarella sticks again! These are easy and absolute delicious with none of the unhealthy additives of the commercial kind. I serve these with my own Angie's Bella Marinara sauce (with the spices punched up a little), but these would also be good with a creamy ranch-style dip. Vary the herbs in the breading if you like, but I like this combination with the marinara sauce.

      Wow! These were so easy!! Not to mention extremely good. I made one exactly as you posted and the cheese just melted into a blob in the oil, the breading had hole in it. Soooo... I took a piece of the cheese dipped in egg mixture, then in the flour mixture, back in the egg mixture, then into the bread crumb mixture. I placed all of them on a wax paper covered cookie sheet and placed them in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Then I took them out of the freezer and cooked them in the oil for about 30-45 seconds. Then turned out great!! Thanks for posting!

      these were good. i made them healthier by baking at 375 for 8 minutes instead of frying - omitted the flour/cornstarch layer, and used fiber one cereal as my breadcrumbs. but, these will definitely be made again and again now

      These should be good. I say should because you have to use regular mozzarella cheese sticks. I used the reduced fat ones and they don't taste right. The breading is fine it is the cheese that didn't work. Use regular cheese sticks.
