Serves: 6 Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 3 Onions
  • 2 Mozzarella Cheese (200 g – 7 oz)
  • 1 cup (150 g) All Purpose Flour
  • 4 small-medium size Eggs
  • 1 ½ cups (200 g) Home Made Bread Crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon (6 g) Sweet Paprika
  • Black Pepper
  • Vegetable Oil for frying (I used Peanut Oil)


  1. Slice the Mozzarella cheese in about ½ inch (1 cm) large slices, then cut them into about 0,5 inch (3 mm) thick thin strips.
    Place the mozzarella strips over a kitchen paper and press one kitchen paper over to absorb water excess. Set aside.
  2. Peel and cut Onions into ½ inch (1 cm) slices.
    Separate the rings.
    Line a baking tray with parchment paper and place a smaller onion ring in the center of a larger one. Repeat with all the rings.
    Fill the gap between the rings with the mozzarella strips.
    Freeze for at least one hour (you can store them in freezer for weeks).
  3. Meanwhile prepare the breading:
    in three separate medium size bowls palce the Flour, the Eggs and the Bread Crumbs.
    Whisk the eggs.
    Combine the Bread Crumbs with Salt, Black Pepper and Paprika.
    Coat each frozen ring in the Flour first, then dip into the Eggs, then roll into the Bread Crumbs mix, then deep into the Eggs again and one last time into the Bread Crumbs mix.
    Place all the breaded rings in a baking tray lined with parchment paper and place them in freezer until heat the oil (you can store them in freezer for weeks).
  4. Fill a large pot with vegetable oil (I used Peanut Oil) and heat over medium heat until it reaches 350° F (175° C).
    Deep fry the frozen rings until golden brown, for about 4 minutes. Be careful not to over-fry them because the Mozzarella may ooze out completely.
    Drain the rings on a paper towel and serve immediately with tomato sauce.
