3-4slicesfresh bread (crust removed and cut into small pieces)*(75 grams)
*I used crusty Italian bread.
vegetable oil for frying
In a blender or food processor (I use a food processor) add the cut up fresh mozzarella, parmesan cheese, parsley salt, bread and egg. Mix together until well combined. It will be slightly sticky.
If you need to lightly dampen your hands with water and form into golf ball size balls. First roll in milk then roll in bread crumbs. Place them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet or plate cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30-60 minutes. Or even overnight if you wish.
If baking the mozzarella balls then Pre-heat oven to 350F (180C).
Remove the tray from the fridge and bake for about 10-15 minutes. Be sure to turn them after about 5-6 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve.
If frying, in a large fryer or deep pot add the vegetable oil halfway full, make sure the temperature remains between 335 - 345F (170-175C), (too high and they cook on the outside but not in the middle / too low and they remain soggy). Once oil is at the correct temperature, fry a few mozzarella balls at a time, until they are golden brown. Approximately 2-3 minutes, but turn often so they brown on all sides. Drain on paper towels for about 20 seconds, then serve. Enjoy.
