Who doesn’t love a good mozzarella stick? That deep-fried crunch, gooey inside, sweet marinara sauce.. That’s the good stuff. The only way to improve them is to make your own homemade mozzarella sticks and add Dan-O’s Seasoning to the mix!
So cheese sticks are great, but you can get them anywhere. Giving them a proper seasoning is how you take them to the next level! So in comes Dan-O’s. I put significant potions of Dan-O’s in the eggs, flour and bread crumbs. I try not to put too much in the bread crumbs because it can burn, but a few tbs gives it some flavor and a nice brown coating.
Breading the cheese sticks (twice) is pretty labor-intensive, but you can speed it up with two people. You do want to freeze your cheese sticks for a good hour or two after breading them to ensure the cheese stays inside the breading, so you will get a break after this labor-intensive step. I might have skipped the freezer part this, but don’t be like me…
Serve homemade mozzarella sticks with marinara sauce and enjoy!
