Notes: I've made this many times, with and without the anchovies. (Dad was
pure Italian as was mom and he absolutely loved anchovies. I never acquired
a taste for them.)

How to Make Mozzarella Marinara (TNT)

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut mozzarella into 3 x 2 x 1/2" pieces. Dip each piece into eggs, then
    flour, then into eggs again and finally into bread crumbs which have been
    seasoned with salt and Parmesan cheese. Put coated cheese pieces in single
    layer on plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes or longer. When ready to
    serve, heat 1/2 " oil in skillet over high heat
  2. Fry cheese until browned on
    one side. Turn and brown other side. This may also be done, a few pieces at
    a time in deep fryer at 375 for about 2 minutes. Drain cheese on paper
    towels. Keep warm in 250 oven until all cheese has been fried.
  3. . For each
    serving, pour 2 T. of the Marinara Sauce on a small plate, put the cheese on
    the sauce and top with additional sauce and 1 anchovy fillet, if using.
    Serve at once. To prepare sauce, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium
    heat and add the garlic, onion and parsley. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Add
    remaining sauce ingredients and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Serves 6
