Fried mozzarella sticks

Mozzarella sticks are a delicious appetizer composed of breaded and fried mozzarella cheese sticks until the inside melts, creating a crunchy texture on the outside and creamy on the inside.  They are popular in Italian cuisine and are commonly served with marinara sauce for dipping.  They are a tasty and satisfying option to share or enjoy as a snack.


• 250 grams of mozzarella cheese (you can use block mozzarella cheese or buy prepackaged mozzarella sticks).

• 1 cup of breadcrumbs

• 1/2 cup of wheat flour

• 2 eggs

• 1/2 teaspoon salt

• 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)

• 1/2 teaspoon black pepper (optional)

• Vegetable oil for frying

• Marinara sauce or tomato sauce to accompany (optional)
Make sure the mozzarella sticks are well frozen before breading so they will be crispy when frying.  Enjoy!


1. Cut the mozzarella cheese into strips or sticks approximately 1.5 centimeters thick and 8-10 centimeters long.  If you are using prepackaged mozzarella sticks, you can skip this step.

2. In a shallow dish, beat the eggs and add the salt and spices (garlic powder and black pepper) if using.  Mix well.

3. In another plate, place the wheat flour.

4. On a third plate, place the breadcrumbs.

5. Take each mozzarella cheese stick and dredge it in the flour first, making sure it is coated on all sides.  Then, dip it into the egg mixture, making sure it is well coated.  Finally, roll it in the breadcrumbs, pressing gently so that the breadcrumbs adhere to the cheese.  Repeat this process with all the cheese sticks and place them on a clean plate.

6. Heat enough vegetable oil in a deep skillet or pot over medium-high heat.  Let the oil reach a temperature of around 180°C.

7. Carefully place the breaded mozzarella sticks in the hot oil.  Fry them for about 2-3 minutes or until golden and crispy on the outside.

8. Remove the fried mozzarella sticks from the oil and place them on absorbent paper to remove excess fat.

9. Serve the mozzarella sticks hot, accompanied by marinara sauce or tomato sauce for dipping.

Ready!  Now you have a delicious recipe for fried mozzarella sticks.  Make sure to eat them while they are hot to enjoy that delicious, melted cheese inside.  Enjoy!
