I have been looking on the internet for the best mozzarella stick recipe and think I have found it. This is so good!
5 pieces mozzarella string cheese, each cut in half
1 egg, beaten
2 TB water
3/4 c plain breadcrumbs (like Progresso)
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1/3 c flour
2 TB cornstarch
1 pinch salt
1 pinch black pepper
vegetable oi, for deep frying (approximately 2 cups)
In a small bowl, combine egg and water. In a separate bowl, combine bread crumbs, garlic salt, oregano and basil. In a third bowl, combine flour and cornstarch. In a large heavy frying pan, heat oil to 375 degrees. Moisten each mozzarella stick in the egg mixture, then dip each one in the bread crumbs and finally the flour mixture. Repeat this 3-step process. Carefully place breaded mozzarella sticks in the hot oil; don't overcrowd (only about 4 at a time). Fry until golden brown, about 30 seconds.
