Great for parties or a fun lunch at home, these Gluten Free Mozzarella Sticks have the perfect, cheesy crunch.

Ingredients

340 g
mozzarella string cheese
6 slices
3 tsp
italian spices
3/4 tsp
salt
3/4 tsp
black pepper
1/2 cup
rice flour
2
eggs, beaten
For frying:
canola oil
For dipping:
marinara sauce

Preparation

  • Cut the mozzarella sticks in half.
  • Put the bread in a food processor or blender and pulse until it’s a fine crumb, around 20 seconds.
  • Place crumbs on a shallow dish and mix in the Italian spices, salt, and pepper.
  • Whisk the eggs briefly and pour onto a separate shallow dish.
  • Put the rice flour on a third shallow dish.
  • Roll a mozzarella stick in the rice flour to coat, then roll in egg, letting excess drip off.
  • Finally, liberally dredge in breadcrumbs, pressing to adhere. Set aside and repeat with remaining sticks.
  • Freeze breaded sticks on a plate for 2 hours, or up to 2 days in a sealed plastic container.
  • This prevents the cheese from melting when fried.
  • Pour oil in a frying pan until one inch deep. Put on medium-high heat until it reaches 175°C.
  • Carefully drop the sticks, four at a time, into the oil, and fry for one and a half minutes.
  • Remove finished sticks from pan and place on paper towels to drain off excess oil.
  • Repeat frying with remaining sticks.
  • Serve with heated marinara!
