The Olive Oil Buyers Guide with Mozzarella Sticks Recipe.

Although I rarely eat it nowadays, I think olive oil has an amazing flavour. I must admit that I never realised how many varieties there are!  Check out this great guide to olive oil from Jamie's Italian.


One of my favourite, naughty, recipes are my mozzarella sticks. I really love the flavour that frying them in olive oil gives them! Pure olive oil is best for this as it's perfect for frying!

You will need:- 

1 pack Mozzarella, I used Tesco Mozzarella for Pizza as it is firmer and square shaped.
Dried Breadcrumbs
Salt & Pepper
2 eggs & dash of milk


Chop the Mozzarella into 1.5cm thick rectangles.

In one bowl put the flour. In a second bowl mix the eggs and milk together.  In a third bowl put the breadcrumbs with a generous serving of salt and pepper.

First dip the mozzarella into the flour, then the egg mixture and the coat in breadcrumbs.  Repeat this process until the cheese is completely covered by a layer of breadcrumbs.

Once all the sticks are coated, put in a deep fat fryer for about 60 seconds on 190 degrees, or you can bake them in the oven for 10 mins at 200 degrees, or until the breadcrumbs are golden.

Serve with a dip of your choice!
