What We Did This Weekend: Fried Mozzarella Sticks with a Jalapeno Twist

Eons ago, I had a segment on my blog called “What We Did This Weekend”. Each week, I would try out a recipe, craft, or DIY project from another blogger that I’ve always wanted to try, and then I would write about it here. Sometimes I found a few misses, but for the most part I found many awesome projects that I wouldn’t have tried otherwise.

2014 is the year to bring back What We Did This Weekend. Each week on Monday or Tuesday, I’ll share something great that we did from the past weekend. I’ll only share the best of the best blogger recipes and ideas, and in line with the tone of this blog, I’ll make sure that each one maximizes YOUR time to the fullest.

I’ve always wanted to make Fried Mozzarella. The few times that I’ve bought them in a restaurant, they’ve always been delicious, but a few places just taste like they forgot to warm them in the microwave all the way. Yuck. I never dreamed how easy it would be to make Fried Mozzarella at home. And the best part? I can chose any type of mozzarella that I want from the store! Yippee! (I know, I sound like a kid who was just told that they can have ice cream for dinner).

Fried Jalapeno Mozzarella

For this Fried Mozzarella, I chose the Weight Watcher’s Jalapeno String Cheese. I wonder what Weight Watcher’s would say if they knew that I used their string cheese to make Fried Mozzarella.

My dad and his wife gave me the Pioneer Woman’s cookbook for Christmas, and the Fried Mozzarella recipe is one of the yummy appetizer recipes in there. But she also has it available on her website, so it’s What We Did This Weekend!

Change it up: I used Jalapeno String Cheese for kick. I also used traditional bread crumbs simple because they are what I had in the pantry.

These are by far the best Fried Mozzarella Sticks that I’ve had, and I was amazed at how easy they were to make. I’ll also let you in on another secret- I had never fried anything before this recipe. So I’m feeling super accomplished today. I successfully fried a Weight Watcher’s product.

    Ok, I have a serious weakness for fried cheese sticks. These look really yummy! (And I LOVE the irony of using the WW cheese!) 😉
