Mozzarella Fail Reincarnated

Recommended Posts

We made mozzarella for the first time recently and it wasn’t exactly spectacular. We didn’t salt it enough and we overworked it. It was rather firm and tasteless. We used some on pizzas and had a small chunk left. Not wanting it to go to waste, and with my new found pan frying confidence from green tomato season, I decided to season and fry up the rest of the mozzarella for a late night snack so it didn’t go to waste. 

 

Fingers were yucky doing the dredge so not many pictures. 

 

A couple of pictures from the original mozzarella cook. Turned a gallon of milk into a log of mozzarella.

Sliced remnant into planks. Dredged in flour, egg beaters, panko and grated Parmesan blend, then again in egg and panko grated Parmesan blend.  Then into a shallow bit of oil in a cast iron pan.

Turned after they were nicely browned.

Plated with some leftover homemade San marzano tomato pizza sauce.

A tasty midnight snack.  The relatively dry and overworked mozzarella lended itself well to this application.

Those would have gone good with the spin spun spam.  :rofl:

I actually thought about frying up a plank or two of the leftover spam, but I didn’t have enough left over dredge ingredients.  And I was pretty sure I would have been solo on that front. Mr. KK devoured the fried mozzarella. I would have had to have tangled with the Spam. Lol.
