Ingredients to make breaded mozzarella cheese fingers:

How to make breaded mozzarella cheese fingers:
Step NO 1
First, we will begin to make this recipe for breaded mozzarella cheese fingers by mixing the breadcrumbs with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste in a bowl or wide plate.
Step NO 2
Then, in another bowl or deep plate, beat the eggs and also add a pinch of salt and pepper. We also place the flour in another bowl or plate and we will have all the ingredients to coat our mozzarella sticks ready.
Step NO 3
Now cut the mozzarella cheese sticks in half or in three parts and, if you have not got the cheese into strips and you have it in a large piece, cut it into more or less regular rectangles so that all the homemade cheese fingers come out more or less equal in size.
Tip: The colder the mozzarella cheese is, the harder it will be and the better it will cut, so I recommend that you keep it in the fridge until the last moment.
Step NO 4
Once this is finished, coat the mozzarella cheese fingers , passing them first in the flour, then in the egg and finally in the breadcrumbs. And so we do with all of them and we reserve them on a flat plate being careful not to manipulate them too much to avoid deforming them.
Step NO 5
Then place a frying pan with plenty of oil to heat and when it is very hot, fry the mozzarella sticks on all sides until they are well browned (about 5 minutes approximately). Reserve them on a plate with absorbent paper.
Tip: If you have or prefer to make the mozzarella fingers in a deep fryer, I recommend that the oil be very clean to prevent the breadcrumbs from burning right away.
Step NO 6
Finally, serve the breaded mozzarella cheese fingers accompanied by your favorite sauce such as mayonnaise or a pink sauce . Even with original guacamole the battered cheese sticks are delicious … try them!
