Yum!!

I love, love love cheese of any kind!! I especially love hot melted cheese on everything from veggies to pasta.  These fried mozzarella patties are a cross between a mozzarella stick and an Italian recipe called mozzarella en carrozza and I just can’t get enough of them…

Here is what you will need.

  • Package of Fresh Mozzarella

( I like to use this brand because it is easy to find and comes pre-sliced, but whatever you find will be great )

  • 1 cup of italian style bread crumbs.
  • 1 cup of flour.
  • 2 beaten eggs.
  • olive oil for frying.
  • sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  • sprinkle of dried basil and dried parsley.

Here is what you will need to do.
