Olive Garden Fried Mozzarella – The Ingredients:

  • 16 oz. mozzarella cheese block
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 well beaten eggs
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp. Garlic salt
  • 1½ cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying.

Olive Garden Fried Mozzarella – The Process:

    1. Slice mozzarella ¾” thick, then cut diagonally to make “right triangles.”
    2. Combine water and eggs. Beat well and set aside.
    3. Combine cornstarch and flour. Set aside.
    4. Combine garlic salt, Italian seasoning, and bread crumbs. Set aside.
    5. If you have deep fryer, fill with vegetable oil and heat to 360 degrees F. Otherwise, use a small, deep frying pan and fill with 2 to 3 inches of vegetable oil… set to medium heat and let get hot enough to immediately fry whatever touches it.
    6. Roll mozzarella triangles in flour, then eggwash, and finally bread crumb mixture.
    7. Carefully place cheese triangles in hot oil and fry until golden brown. (This only takes a few seconds so keep a close watch!)
    8. When finished, remove fried mozzarella from hot oil and set on paper towels to drain.
    9. Serve with a nice spicy marinara sauce.
    10. Enjoy!
