How to prepare Fried mozzarella and anchovy skewers

To prepare fried mozzarella and anchovy skewers, start by slicing the mozzarella for pizza 1. Then drain the anchovies in oil. Take a long slice of sandwich bread, lay the slices of mozzarella 2, trimming them to have a uniform layer 3.

Lay some anchovy fillets 4 and cover with another slice of bread 5. Continue with slices of mozzarella and anchovy fillets 6.

Close with another slice of bread 7. Now you can skewer the shorter side with 4 skewers to obtain the first 4 skewers (8-9) and continue like this until everything has been used.

Pass the skewers first in milk 10, then in beaten eggs 11, and finally in breadcrumbs 12.

Proceed to the double breadcrumbs dipping once again the skewers already breaded first in eggs 13 and then in breadcrumbs 14. Heat the peanut seed oil in a pan to 300° F (150° C). Fry a few pieces at a time 15 to avoid overheating the oil.

Remove when they are golden 16: it will take a few minutes. Place them on absorbent paper to remove the excess oil 17 and serve your fried mozzarella and anchovy skewers hot 18.

Storage

You should eat them as soon as they are ready.

Freezing is not recommended.
