Some tips:

Check the price of "String Cheese". It may be cheaper, it's Mozz., and it's already the right size (just cut in half and you have the same thing used in restaurants). Bread the cheese, then FREEZE them. Deep-fry from frozen, as this will help the breading cook without melting the cheese out through the breading. It only takes a minute or so in hot oil to cook these, even from frozen.
