Duration:

PREP TIME: 10 MINUTES
COOK TIME: 5 MINUTES
FREEZING TIME : 1 HOUR
TOTAL TIME: 15 MINUTES
SERVINGS: 4 PEOPLE

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 pieces string cheese
  • 1 large eggs beaten
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese the powdered kind in a can
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt coarse Kosher salt works best

    INSTRUCTIONS

    • Cut string cheese in half crosswise.
    • Beat 1 egg in small bowl. Set aside.
    • Place almond flour, Parmesan cheese, coconut flour, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt in zipper sandwich bag. Shake bag to blend.
    • Dip each piece of mozzarella into the beaten egg and then coat by shaking in the sandwich bag. Freeze for at least one hour.
    • Heat oil in small frying pan to at least half inch high. Temperature of oil should be about 325-375°F. Higher temperatures tend to brown too quickly with cheese melting out. Air frying works too using a temperature of about 370 to 400°F for about 5 to 7 minutes.
    • Cook each coated piece of mozzarella in the hot oil until browned on all sides. Enjoy!

    NOTES

    Makes 1 dozen mini sticks. A serving is 3 sticks.

    Salt can be adjusted to taste. I tried ¼ teaspoon at first, but made another batch with ½ teaspoon and it tasted much better.

    For a double coating: Coat and freeze, then take them out and coat them and freeze them again for at least 30 minutes before frying.
