Crispy Bocconcini Balls

Crispy Bocconcini Balls


Bocconcini Balls 1 Tub
Eggs 2
Panko Breadcrumbs 1 1/4 Cups
Finely Grated Parmesan 1/4 Cup
Flour 2 Tablespoons
Oil for deep frying
Arrabbiata Sauce 1 Cup

These little mozzarella balls are found in the cheese section of most grocery stores, they come in a little tub.

I like to serve them with Arrabbiata sauce for the spice but regular Marinara will work too.

  1. Drain the Bocconcini Balls and lay them on a paper towel to dry while you prepare the coating.
  2. Place the Flour in a small bowl, beat the Eggs in another bowl, then add the Panko Breadcrumbs & Parmesan to another.
  3. Roll the Bocconcini in the Flour, then the Eggs & Panko Mixture, re-dip into the Egg mixture, then the Breadcrumbs again.
  4. Place on a baking or wax paper covered plate and freeze for about 20-30 minutes.
  5. Heat the Oil to about 350 Degrees, also heat the oven to about 300 Degrees to keep them hot while you fry the rest.
  6. Fry the Balls in batches until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.  Place on a paper towel lined baking tray and keep in the oven until all finished.
  7. Serve with Arrabbiata Sauce.
