Is there anything better than breaded, fried cheese? Yes – gluten-free breaded fried cheese! For those of you living the gluten-free life, you may be missing the comfort of ooey, gooey breaded mozzarella sticks ordered from your favourite, sinful restaurant. If your mouth is watering by now, then this is the recipe for you.
Prep Time: 20mins Servings: 2
- 12 sticks of goat mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup coconut oil or other frying oil
- 1/2 cup blanched finely ground almond flour
- 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 egg
- Marinara or pasta sauce, optional for dipping
- Freeze cheese sticks overnight, at least 12 hours.
- When you’re ready to cook, add the oil to a medium-sized frying pan and heat on medium-high heat.
- While the oil is heating, combine almond flour, Italian seasoning and salt on a plate. Set aside.
- Crack egg into a bowl and whip with a fork for 1 minute.
- One at a time, place a frozen cheese stick in the egg and coat it completely. Then, transfer over to the almond flour mixture and coat the stick in batter. Make sure that it’s well coated. Set on a clean plate and repeat with remaining frozen cheese sticks.
- Place completed sticks into preheated oil and fry for 10-15 seconds per side. When they’re golden all over, transfer to a cooling rack to allow the excess oil to drip off.
- Serve immediately. With dip or on it’s own.
