Skillet Fried Mozzarella Sticks

We all gave these a ten. They aren't exactly the same as store bought but they're very good!

12 slices white bread, crusts removed
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp dried Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp salt
6 super-long (6 3/4") mozzarella string cheese, such as Plly-O's
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup marinara sauce

1. Using hands, press bread to flatten, remove 1 cheese stick from egg mixture; place on bread slice.
Roll tightly, pinching seam if necessary to seal. On ends of each, press bread over cheese, repeat with remaining bread and string cheese.
2. Lightly beat egg with Milk, seasoning and salt. Place mozzarella sticks in egg mixture.
3. Heat oil in large skillet over med high heat. Add wrapped mozzarella. Cook in batches, until golden, 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
4. Heat marinara sauce; if desired, sprinkle with parsley. Serve sauce with mozzarella sticks.
