So obviously, this would be a primal recipe, rather than paleo. And this would most definitely be considered a treat recipe. But recipes like this one are exactly why/how we can maintain this paleo lifestyle long term.
In the preceding paragraph, I started every sentence with a word all English teachers would tell you not to use. Oops. Good thing this isn’t a grammar blog.
The story behind this recipe is my family’s Super Bowl Sunday tradition. At least five years ago, my husband and I decided we would stay home and watch the Super Bowl as a family. We are not a big sports watching family, but we watch the big games: the Super Bowl and the ACC basketball tourney. We put a picnic blanket on the floor in the living room, make a whole bunch of snack/appetizer foods and pig out in front of the game. For more details on our typical menu, see this post.
All has been well with the food except for these mozzarella sticks. Back in the good old days when I could just bake up a bunch of those things from the freezer section, life was easy. But now that we’re all healthy, I have to make these from scratch. I tried every year, but we always ended up with a gloppy mess.
Until this year – I finally got it! And they’re really easy and fast. You just have to do it right. Never fear, I tell you how below. Just don’t cut any corners. Actually follow all of the instructions and you’ll be golden. Well, your mozzarella sticks will be golden and you will be a hero. Just don’t eat these every day, ok? Once a year is plenty. If you’re not a football fan, they’ll give you something to look forward to on game day.
