1 1/3 cups Italian-style dried breadcrumbs
1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan
2 (16-ounce) blocks pasteurized mozzarella cut into sticks
2 large eggs, beaten to blend
2 cups vegetable oil, for frying
3-4 cups @vesperbrosfoods Marinara Sauce
Add bread crumbs to a bowl and beaten eggs to another. Dip the cheese in the eggs to coat completely and allow excess to drip off. Next coat the cheese in the bread crumb. Set cheese sticks on a baking sheet. Repeat until all cheese sticks have been breaded. Cover and freeze until frozen, about 2 hours or overnight.
Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Working in small batches, fry the cheese until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Transfer the fried cheese to wire rack.
Set onto serving dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan and parsley. Serve with @vesperbrosfoods Marinara sauce
