  1. Cut the mozzarella into ‘chips’. Tip the flour into a bowl and season well. Whisk the eggs in a second bowl and tip the breadcrumbs, paprika and oregano into a third. Coat the mozzarella sticks in the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs. Transfer to a parchment-lined tray and freeze for at least 2 hrs.

  2. Heat enough oil to come 2-3cm up the side of a saucepan. When hot, drop in a test chip – it should sizzle straight away and brown within a minute or two. The secret is to cook them long enough to crisp up the outside without letting the mozzarella ooze out – it may take you a few practice chips to get it right. Cook the chips in batches and drain on kitchen paper. Serve hot with your favourite dip.

These are really simple to make and (according to my son) almost as good as the mozzarella dippers from McDonalds! I now have a batch which I keep in the freezer ready to use. Be careful - don't let the oil get too hot or the crumb burns and the cheese doesn't cook.
