Low carb mozzarella sticks that are delightfully crispy on the outside with that ooey gooey middle we all know and love.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 6 mozzarella sticks, string cheese
  • 1 3.5 oz bag of pork rinds
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • seasoning to taste, I like italian seasoning, garlic, and parsley
  • marinara for dipping

Instructions

  1. Cut your mozzarella sticks in half and set aside. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside as well.
  2. Grind the pork rinds in your food processor, I use my Cuisanart Smart Stick for this. then add pork rind “breading” to a bowl along with the Parmesan cheese and desired seasonings.
  3. In a separate dish, whisk 2 eggs. Dip each mozzarella stick into the eggs, then into the breading mixture. Place each breaded mozzarella stick on the parchment lined baking sheet and freeze for about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Remove chilled mozzarella sticks from the freezer and repeating the breading procedure, dipping in the eggs and then in the pork rind “breading”. This will give you a nice sturdy coating.
  5. Freeze in the freezer for at least an hour. At this point you could even store them in the freezer for quick frying on a later date.
  6. Heat oil to 350 degree. Fry each frozen mozzarella stick for about 2-3 minutes, until golden brown. Serve hot with marinara sauce if desired.
