Mozzarella sticks are one of the most popular appetisers out there. It's hard to beat fried cheese and you can make them pretty easily at home with a waffle iron.
Daniel Shumski, author of Will It Waffle?, explains the process at Serious Eats. Start with some tasty mozzarella -- or another cheese you like -- slice it up, throw on some breading, and start frying in a well-oiled waffle iron. The best part is that the waffle iron creates perfect divots in your fried cheese to make scooping up any dipping sauce super-easy. Check out the complete recipe at the link below.
