Serves:

Ingredients

  • 16 oz mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs, store-bought or homemade
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, grated or powdered
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 pcs eggs

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Prepare your breading station. Transfer your flour, Italian Seasoning, and garlic salt to a large bowl.

  4. In the third bowl, add your bread crumbs.
