Crispy mozzarella: The versatile snack for any occasion

Assembling this scrumptious dish requires a handful of simple ingredients that you likely already have in your pantry. Here's the exact list:

  • Mini mozzarella,
  • Corn flour,
  • Breadcrumbs,
  • An egg,
  • Water,
  • Spices: Salt, sweet and smoked paprika, granulated garlic.

A few extra tips:

  • Consider adding other herbs and spices to the batter, such as oregano, basil, or chili powder, for an added kick.
  • If you prefer, instead of frying, these mozzarella balls can be baked in the oven for a healthier alternative.
  • For presentation, consider serving your mozzarella balls with accents like cherry tomatoes, olives or a scattering of fresh basil.

Effortless preparation

Breading and frying the mozzarella balls is a remarkably simple and quick process. Begin by draining and drying the cheese. Next, beat together an egg and water, mix the breadcrumbs with your choice of spices, and then roll each mozzarella ball first in corn flour, then in your egg mixture, and finally in the breadcrumbs. Fry the prepared balls in pre-heated oil until they achieve a tempting golden-brown hue.

This Crispy Mozzarella serves as the perfect snack for literally any occasion. Whether you're hosting a party, looking to complement a cheeseboard, or planning a meal, these versatile bites will surely be a crowd-pleaser. Round off the dish with a variety of dipping sauces, like a classic tomato sauce, a creamy mayonnaise or a flavorful garlic sauce.
