Breaded mozzarella balls

If there’s one thing you can find in most kitchens, it’s a paper towel roll! Practical and versatile, it quickly became indispensable in my kitchen, both for cleaning during the preparation of my dishes, for wiping fruit and vegetables or wrapping food. While there are several tips I already knew, like using a lightly dampened paper towel to keep herbs fresh longer, I learned a lot of new tricks by unrolling my Okay paper towel roll. ! As for example: to surround frozen bread with paper towel before defrosting it to keep all its crispness! And there are plenty of other tips to discover on the new limited edition Okay ūüôā

I also have my little tips and I use my paper towel a lot in the kitchen, for example when I fry to absorb the excess fat after cooking. As for these small breaded mozzarella balls, a delight as an aperitif or accompanied by a green salad and cherry tomatoes. A first pass on the paper towel to dry them and make the breadcrumbs adhere better, then a second pass, after cooking, to absorb the excess fat! An easy and super quick recipe to make!

And you, do you have any kitchen tips with paper towels? Do not hesitate to let me know in a comment.
