Delicious no-bread mozzarella sticks for the low carb dieter!

Top Review by LUVMY2BOYS

An amazing recipe! My husband is on a very low carb diet & just the other day he was missing mozzarella sticks. I found this recipe soon after. I followed the recipe pretty closely the first time--but I found I needed much more olive oil to cook the sticks--and I needed more batter to coat the sticks. I did roll them 3 times so that might have been why--but I was nervous about the cheese melting when they hit the hot oil. The 2nd time I tried them--I found that 2 rolls was good enough & tasted better. I added Italian seasoning, oregano, parsley & a little salt to the batter. U have to be careful to not crowd the sticks, and be careful when you take them out (breading can still be a little flimsy, so hold onto the sticks). I did cut the string cheese in half, but the 2nd time I did not--and that was much easier to work with (perhaps my sticks were small). Husband really enjoyed them. Thank u very much for sharing!
