How to Make Breaded Mozzarella Slices With Homemade Marinara

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in small bowl. Place 1/4" Mozzerella slices in small baking dish and cover with marinade. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  2. Set up a breading station-

    Bowl One: flour
    Bowl Two: whisked egg
    Bowl Three: Panko mixed with Italian breadcrumbs

    Heat oil. Test with a small piece of bread to make sure it's hot enough.

    Dab off excess oil with paper towel. Roll in flour until all sides are completely coated with a light coating of flour. This keeps your breading from sliding off. Then egg, then bread crumbs making sure to coat completely. If not covered completely with bread crumbs, you can lose your melty cheese!
  3. Fry 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melty and crumbs are golden brown. Drain on paper towels and lightly salt, if desired. To serve, sprinkle with a little chopped fresh Italian parsley. I serve with my marinara sauce, but feel free to use your own.
