Fried mini mozzarella (bocconcini) (Italian)

Breaded mini mozzarella balls (also called bocconcini) deep fried until crispy on the outside and melted and gooey on the inside. A lovely snack or starter to be served hot while the cheese inside is still runny. Perfect to please a crowd of visitors or as comfort food just for yourself. Enjoy :)
Recipe source: here

Last year: Flourless apple brownie with walnuts.
Two years ago: Muffins using only wholemeal flour (with raisins and chocolate).
Three years ago: Mimosa (cocktail).
Four years ago: Baby making and no cooking :).

Ingredients (serves 2):
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup of finely ground breadcrumbs
  • 250 g mini mozzarella balls
  • vegetable oil for frying

Drain the mini mozzarella if it comes packed in liquid. Beat the eggs with the salt in a shallow bowl. Put the breadcrumbs in another plate. Dip the cheese balls first in the egg, then in the breadcrumbs, then egg, then breadcrumbs again.

Heat a generous quantity of oil in a deep pan. Drop the coated cheese balls into it and fry them for 3 minutes or so on each side or until golden all over.

Don't let them fry for too long or the cheese will become too liquid and they'll fall apart. Transfer them on paper towels to drain the excess oil and repeat with the remaining cheese balls until done.
Transfer to serving plates while still warm and dig in! :)
