Mozzarella Sticks

These were a hit with everyone in our family. I got the recipe from, I changed it up a bit though.
16 pieces string cheese, removed from wrappers
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs
3 tbs milk
2 cups panko bread crumbs
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
Canola oil, for frying
Slice the string cheese in half.
Place the flour in a small bowl. In another separate bowl, combine the bread crumbs with the salt and pepper, stir to combine. In a shallow dish, whisk the eggs with the milk to combine.
To assemble, one by one, dust the cheese in the flour, tapping the excess off. Next, dip the cheese in the egg mixture, covering completely. Then lastly, roll the cheese in the panko crumb mixture. Gently remove and place on a baking sheet. Place the sheet in a freezer for 20 – 30 minutes to flash freeze sticks.
To cook, I heated my deep fryer to 350 degrees and cook them for 2 minutes. We dipped them in marinara sauce. I served them with the corn dog bites that was posted by Sally, here the link for those
