This might have been the best idea I’ve had all week! They sell mozzarella cheese in little, round sticks that are just perfect for this.
I took those sticks, cut them in thirds, wrapped each one in bacon, coated them in flour and brown sugar, dipped them in a batter made of egg, milk and flour, and then coated them with seasoned bread crumbs (I used Panko brand, just because that’s what I happened to have on hand). Deep fried at 325° until done, and they were absolutely delicious!
It’s a mozzarella stick, with bacon. What’s not to love?
