Stumbled upon this recipe over on Peas and Crayons and had to try it. My mozzarella balls didn’t really look like balls (it’s ok, you can laugh, I won’t judge you) but they tasted amazing! Maybe they just weren’t frozen enough? So I know my balls look really sad but they tasted so good, I am going to give them another go! I will let you know how it goes the second time around, in the meantime any suggestions of what I did wrong?
You will need:
- fresh mozzarella cheese
- 1 egg white, whisked
- 1/4 cup of flour
- 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs (Gia Russa Italian bread crumbs are a good choice)
Roll the mozzarella into balls and freeze over night. I did this step by covering each ball with tinfoil and then putting them all in a freezer bag.
Make a three bowl dipping station. The first bowl put the flour, second bowl the egg white, and the third bowl the bread crumbs. Dip each ball of frozen mozzarella into all three (flour, egg, then crumbs) and place on a baking sheet covered with tinfoil. Bake at 425° for 10-12 minutes. Serves well with tomato basil soup.
