1 cup all-purpose flour

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

2 tablespoons milk (or water)

1 cup Italian bread crumbs

Kosher salt

16 mozzarella sticks

Grated Parmesan, for garnish

Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Pizza sauce warmed, for dipping


Preheat waffle maker to medium heat. Set up a dredging station: Add flour to a shallow bowl. In a separate shallow bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. In a third shallow bowl, season bread crumbs with salt. Toss mozzarella sticks in flour, toss in egg mixture until fully coated, then coat in bread crumbs. Spray waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. Place coated mozzarella sticks sided by side in the hot waffle iron. Cover and cook until golden, about 4 minutes. Carefully remove from waffle iron using tongs or a fork, then cut waffles into strips. Garnish with Parmesan and parsley. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
