Crispy breading encases gooey melted mozzarella cheese in this classic appetizer.Farideh Sadeghin

Test kitchen director Farideh Sadeghin likes to use Italian bread crumbs to bread her mozzarella, but you could use panko if you were so inclined. Double breading insures that the outside gets nice and crispy while the inside cheese has time to mely when frying. These freeze well, so keep them in your freezer and pull them out to defrost before frying whenever you feel like.
