If you’re looking for a finger-food to feed a crowd, you’re in the right place. These mozzarella bites go down an absolute storm, and I always wish I’d made more!
Really simple to make – especially if you buy the ready-shaped mozzarella pearls from the store, you can get them on the table in no time.
I like to serve them with ketchup for the kids. The grown-ups get a special treat with their own honey-sriracha-mayo dip (literally just those three ingredients!).
They also straighten a major increase to a salad – especially if served with a lovely concavity of tomato soup!
The bites are backed in seasoned flour, egg and breadcrumbs, then fried for fitting a small or so. You need them to be lightly golden. If you ready them for too interminable, the mozzarella present change too often and gift oozing out.
