Keto Mozzarella Sticks
Warm gooey cheese-sticks wrapped in a crispy low carb coating. They're perfect for dipping in marinara or eating by themselves
Preparing the Mozzarella Sticks
In a medium sized bowl mix together the heavy cream and eggs. Set aside.
Using a blender, grind the pork rinds into a fine powder. Then mix the crushed pork rinds and spices together in a shallow bowl. Set aside.
Add your coconut flour to another medium sized bowl.
Dip the frozen cheese sticks into the egg mixture, shaking off any excess. Immediately dip and batter with coconut flour.
Then dip into the egg mixture again before finally dipping into the pork rind mixture to form a thick coating around the cheese stick.
Heat your shallow layer of oil until it is hot enough to sizzle a mozzarella stick when dipped, but not hot enough to create smoke.
Once oil is hot, place in your mozzarella sticks and fry for 30 seconds a side, about 2-3 minutes total. They should be a dark golden brown, but not burnt.
Serve and enjoy. Recipe can be stored in fridge for 5 days. Reheat in the oven for 5 minutes at 400 degrees
