Mozzarella Waffles

Makes 8 waffles

1 (16-ounce) block whole milk mozzarella cheese
1 cup flour
2 large eggs, beated
1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
Nonstick cooking spray
Sliced scallions, for garnish
Marinara sauce for dipping

Preheat a waffle maker to medium heat. Cut the mozzarella into four equal slices, then cut each slice in half into square chunks, making eight chunks total.

Place the flour, beaten eggs, and breadcrumbs into three separate bowls.

Dredge a mozzarella square in the flour, shaking off the excess, then dip into the beaten egg.

Roll it in the breadcrumbs, making sure that it is completely coated.

Put the breaded mozzarella on a plate; repeat with the remaining mozzarella chunks.

Spray the waffle iron on both sides with cooking spray. Cook the mozzarella squares in the waffle iron for about two minutes, until the breadcrumbs are golden brown and the cheese is starting to bubble.

Garnish with scallions and serve with marinara!
