Fried cheese sticks in pan with dill
Homemade mozzarella sticks are easy to make and taste WAY better than what you’d get at a restaurant!
Prep Time: 20 minutesCook Time:10 minutesTotal Time: 30 minutesServings: 12
12 pieces mozzarella cheese strings
2 eggs beaten
1/2 cup almond flour
2 Tbsp coconut flour
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese finely grated
2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes optional, if you want a little heat
Preheat oven to 400 F or about 200 C. Line a baking cheese with parchment paper (better than foil as cheese can stick to it).
Beat 2 eggs in a small bowl and set aside
Place the almond flour, coconut flour, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, salt, garlic powder and red pepper flakes if using, in a zipper lock sandwich bag. Shake bag until blended.
Dip each mozzarella cheese string/stick into the beaten egg and then put into the sandwich bag. Coat the cheese string by shaking the bag and place on a plate. Freeze for 30 to 60 minutes.
If baking, place the mozzarella sticks on the baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown.
If frying, heat a small amount of oil (olive preferably) in a small frying pan to about 1/4 an inch deep. Heat oil over a medium heat and pan-fry until golden brown. There’s no need to try and ‘deep fry’ them. Brown on all sides
Enjoy as is or use a low sugar marinara sauce
