Gluten Free Mozzerella Sticks

Gluten Free Mozzarella Sticks

1 lb Fresh mozzarella cut into sticks

2 large eggs

¼ cup milk

1 ½ cup Gluten Free Bisquick

1 cup finely ground bread crumbs

1-2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

Oil or shortening for frying

Put ½ cup Bisquick into a large plastic bag

Combine the rest of the Bisquick with the bread crumbs and Italian seasoning in a large, deep dish.

Put the cut mozzarella sticks into the bag and gently toss until coated (if you are using low moisture mozzarella dip it in the milk first).

Remove the sticks from the Bisquick and place them in a container with a tightly fitting lid (Tupperware works great).  Pour the milk over the stick, put the lid on the container and turn upside down and back a couple times until they are all wet.

Take the sticks out of the milk and put them back in the flour back, tossing again to coat. 

Discard all but about 2 Tablespoons of the milk and then beat the eggs into the milk.  Remove the sticks from the bag and dip them into the egg mixture then put them in the bread crumbs.  When there are several sticks in the bread crumbs they can be tossed gently back and forth until coated.

Fry in HOT oil, about 375 degrees for 1-2 minutes, until the cheese starts to leak out. 

Serve hot with your favorite marinara sauce.

*Most home use deep fat fryers do not go that high, so it is best to use a frying pan on the stove.  Only fry a few at a time, you need to put them in and remove them quickly.  If you have a metal basket to put them in and take them out with it works best.
