Fried Mozzarella Sticks

Mozzarella Sticks

12 to 16 ounces Vegetable Oil
1 lb Mozzarella Cheese cut into 32 sticks
5/8 cup Flour
2 eggs
2 tbsp water
1 1/4 cups parmesan cheese
1/3 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp oregano

Heat oil to 375 degrees in an electric skillet or heavy bottom saucepan (if using a saucepan, use a probe). In bag, shake cheese sticks with flour until well coated. In shallow bowl, beat eggs with water. In another shallow bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients. Dip cheese sticks one at a time, in egg mixture, then roll in crumb mixture until well coated. Place the cheese sticks on a large baking sheet and chill in a fridge for about an hour. Fry sticks in the hot oil for 3 to 5 seconds or until golden brown. Remove carefully with slotted spoon or tongs...and serve with your favorite dipping sauce...I like diced tomatoes and tomato can use whatever you want really.
