Everyone is obsessed with these ooey gooey homemade mozzarella sticks, breaded with a flavorful coating and fried to a golden perfection.
Unwrap cheese sticks and cut them in half. (tip: unwrap while cheese stick wrappers are still connected and they will all come off at once).
You can use bowls for this next step, but I think using the plastic bags (without a zipper) are less messy and much quicker. (SUGGESTED TIP: I keep a box of these storage bags, without a zipper, on hand at all times. You can use them for so many things!!). In bag #1, toss the flour, paprika and salt. In bag #2, mix the panko, parsley and oregano. In a bowl, beat the eggs and milk together.
Heat a few inches of your canola or vegetable oil in a large frying pan. Place sticks, in batches, in the oil and fry until golden brown on all sides (about 30-60 seconds). Drain on a plate lined with a paper towel. Serve immediately with marinara sauce or ranch.
