Coat the Mozzarella Sticks

Take each mozzarella stick and coat it first in flour, shaking off any excess. Dip the floured stick into the beaten eggs, ensuring it's fully coated.

For an extra crispy coating, you can repeat the egg and breadcrumb steps. This is optional but recommended for a thicker crust.
