Fried Mozzarella Ingredients
- 4 eggs
- 15 g/1⁄2 oz plain flour, seasoned with salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 15 g/1⁄2 oz dried white breadcrumbs
- 600 g/1 1⁄4 lb mozzarella cheese
- sunflower oil for deep-frying
Fried Mozzarella Recipe
Beat the eggs in a bowl. Spread some seasoned flour on one plate and some breadcrumbs on another.
Slice the mozzarella into 5 mm/1⁄2 in pieces. Dredge the slices with the flour first, then dip into the beaten egg, then into the breadcrumbs. Dip again into the egg and again into the breadcrumbs to coat well.
Pour the sunflower oil into a deep heavy frying pan so that it is at least 2.5 cm/1 in in depth. Heat until a piece of bread dropped into the oil sizzles immediately.
Fry the coated cheese in the oil until golden. Remove with a spatula, drain on kitchen paper and serve hot.
