These keto mozzarella sticks have a crispy outside with that classic melty cheese interior – and will fit into your low carb lifestyle!
I don’t measure the temperature of the oil, but you’ll know it’s the right temperature if the outside gets golden brown while the inside gets a little melty. If the outside starts to burn while the inside is still hard, the oil is too hot. If you drop them in the pan and they don’t start to sizzle a bit, the oil is too low.
The nutrition analysis on this recipe is difficult, due to the lack of data on how much oil is absorbed. These nutrition facts assume 25% oil absorption (estimating around 1/4 cup across the entire batch) and also accounts for the fact that there is about 30-40% of the breading still remaining at the end.
