Before I say anything about the process of making these, I just gotta say...these are AMAZING! You know how sometimes you cook something and once you taste it you're like "damn, I'm good" - I experienced that with this.
I recently saw a recipe for buffalo chicken mozzarella sticks and found my mouth watering so hard. I could go for buffalo chicken anything. Buffalo chicken being my favorite flavor combo, I got thinking about other great flavor combos. With it being spring (finally!) spinach and artichoke popped into my head.
If you have been following my blog for a while now (or if you know me IRL) then you know how I feel about farmers markets. I love 'em. So I was THRILLED to see some greens make their way back to the market shelves. I think this was the perfect way to use some of the spinach I picked up today!
When you make these, try to move quick. This will prevent the cheese mixture from getting too soft (which can make breading them difficult and cause the cheese to leak out while frying). That being said, I won't keep you any longer from making these. I hope upon first taste you think to yourself, "damn, Im good" too!
