These can be frozen overnight if you prefer. Serve with marinara sauce.

What you’ll need:

1 lb mozzarella cheese
3 eggs, beaten

Oil to fry in

Cut cheese into strips that are approximately 2” long and ½” wide. Dip the cheese into eggs, then crumbs, then eggs, then crumbs. Place on a cookie sheet lined with foil and sprayed with non stick cooking spray. Freeze for at least 10 minutes. Fry in hot oil 2 – 4 minutes until golden brown. Makes about 15 cheese sticks.

Cost:
mozzarella – $3.49/block
eggs – $1.09/ dozen
dry bread crumbs – $0.99
Total – $4.75
