Fried mozzarella







Cook Time

00-00 Min


  • 4 eggs
  • 15g/1 ⁄2oz plain flour, seasoned with salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 15g/1⁄2oz dried white breadcrumbs
  • 600g/1 1⁄4lb mozzarella cheese
  • sunflower oil for deep frying
  • Beat the eggs in a bowl. Spread some seasoned flour on one plate and some breadcrumbs on another.
  • Slice the mozzarella into 5mm/1⁄2in pieces. Dredge the slices with the flour first, then dip into the beaten egg, then into the breadcrumbs. Dip again into the egg and again into the breadcrumbs to coat well.
  • Pour the sunflower oil into a deep heavy frying pan so that it is at least 2.5cm/1in in depth. Heat until a piece of bread dropped into the oil sizzles immediately.
  • Fry the coated cheese in the oil until golden. Remove with a spatula, drain on kitchen paper and serve hot.
