Keto Mozzarella Sticks - a Repost since I made a huge batch of them again yesterday for the freezer

Keto Mozzarella Sticks - Prepped and ready for the freezer

Here they are fried and ready to eat!

Low Carb Mozzarella Sticks

2 eggs, beaten
1 c almond flour
scant 1 c powdered Parmesan cheese
optional:  1/2 c wheat resistant starch 75
optional:  1/2 c ground pork rinds

(If you don't use the wheat resistant starch 75 or pork rinds just use more Parmesan or almond flour)
Approximately 20 sticks string cheese
2-3 T Italian Seasoning
1 t garlic salt

Cut the string cheese in half.
Lightly beat the eggs and pour into a small shallow dish.
Mix the dry ingredients in a large Ziploc baggy.
Roll the cheese stick halves in the egg and dip in the dry mix. Press lightly to help it adhere.
Place the breaded cheese sticks on a baking sheet and freeze at least 2 hours or up to 3 months.
When you want to make them, heat about 2 inches of oil in a pan and fry the sticks for 1-2 minutes. Do not crowd the pan.  Remove them with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.  You can salt them if you wish for more salt.  Serve hot with low or no sugar marinara sauce or ketchup. 

As I mentioned above, I've posted this recipe previously.  And since lots of pictures is always a good thing... here are the photos from the original post.  I used a ziploc bag for the breading that time, a bowl this time. Do whatever you prefer.

I hate breading items.  I hate how the egg and dry coatings 'coat' my fingers.  So I used a steak knife to hang on to the stick this time.  The most recent time I made them, I had a box of disposable gloves so I put those on my left hand to 'bread' and I used tongs to roll the cheese in the beaten egg.  

All breaded! 

Now you have to freeze them...  at least a couple hours if you want to make them today otherwise they can stay in your deep freezer for a few months.  (If they last that long.)

Here I am carrying them to the freezer.  I freeze them like this for a couple hours then transfer them to a freezer baggy (Ziploc).

Yum!  Great plain... but honestly I like them with ketchup best.
