━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ 

Gluten-free mozzarella sticks offer a delightful alternative to the traditional version, making them suitable for individuals with gluten sensitivities or those following a gluten-free lifestyle. These cheesy delights are easy to prepare and perfect for satisfying your craving for a crunchy, gooey snack. Here's a simple recipe with five easy steps.

INGREDIENTS 

– 12 mozzarella sticks (gluten-free) – 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour – 2 cups gluten-free breadcrumb – 2 large egg – 1/2 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy) – 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning – 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder – Salt and pepper to taste – Cooking oil for frying

INSTRUCTIONS

– In three separate shallow bowls, place the gluten-free all-purpose flour in one, beat the eggs with milk in another, and combine the gluten-free breadcrumbs with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in the third.

Step 1

– Take a mozzarella stick and coat it first in the gluten-free flour, ensuring it's fully covered. Next, dip it into the egg and milk mixture, making sure to coat it entirely. Finally, roll the stick in the seasoned breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere the coating. Repeat this process for all the mozzarella sticks.

Step 2

– Place the coated mozzarella sticks on a tray lined with parchment paper and freeze them for at least 30 minutes. This step helps the coating set and prevents the cheese from oozing out during frying.

Step 3

– In a deep fryer or a large, deep skillet, heat the cooking oil to 350°F (175°C). Make sure there's enough oil to fully submerge the mozzarella sticks.

Step 4

– Carefully place the frozen mozzarella sticks into the hot oil, frying them until they turn golden brown and crispy, usually for about 2-3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove them from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil. Serve the gluten-free mozzarella sticks hot with your favorite marinara or dipping sauce.
