Mozzarella Milananese (Mozzarella Cheese Sticks)


1 lb packaged mozzarella
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup flour
1 cup flavored bread crumbs
Vegetable oil for frying


Slice the mozzarella into flat wedges (it's easier to fry this way).
Set up 3 bowls, one with flour, one with egg, one with the bread crumbs.

Coat each piece of cheese first with flour, then egg, then bread
crumbs, then throw immediately into the hot oil to fry (the coating
doesn't turn out as well if you let it sit around inside its coating).

Fry for a minute or two on each side until coating is golden brown and
the cheese is melted.

Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve.

Note: The difficult part of this is keeping the cheese from escaping
the coating while it's frying. For best results, don't let the oil get
too hot while frying, and try to keep the oil level at about 1/4 inch
deep at all times during the process (i.e., do not deep fry).
