Homemade Mozzarella Sticks
I love appetizers. Snack foods that are flavorful, addictive and satisfying.
And that is exactly what today’s recipe is.
I am sure all of us are familiar with mozzarella sticks. They are a classic appetizer that puts a smile on just about everyone’s face.
However, not all of us have tried them homemade. And that is a crying shame because they are SO much better this way. Trust me on this!
This cripsy batter is perfection. A mixture of bread crumbs and panko to make one flavorful and amazingly crisp outer shell coating some ooey gooey mozzarella cheese.
Oh yeah. It is a beautiful thing that will have your tastebuds doing a happy dance.
If you need an appetizer that will please your company, give this a try! You will be SO glad you did!
- 2 cups vegetable oil
- 10 to 12 mozzarella sticks
- 2 eggs
- 1 Tablespoon milk
- ¼ cup flour
- 1 cup Italian style breadcrumbs
- ½ cup Panko crumbs
- Marinara sauce to dip
- Heat oil in a small pan over medium heat.
- In small bowl, whisk milk and eggs together.
- On a large plate mix breadcrumbs and Panko.
- Coat cheese sticks in flour and then dip into egg mixture. Next, dip cheese into breadcumb mixture. Dip once again into eggs and back into the breadcrumb mixture. Repeat with each cheese stick.
- With tongs, carefully drop cheese into oil and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve with marinara sauce.

I was at a restaurant last weekend and they had homemade mozz and made their own sticks and I was all excited to try it but it wasn't anything special. You could open a restaurant with these...they blow the pants off any mozz sticks I've seen! :)
About how hot should the oil be before putting the sticks into it?
I've made these before but I want to try your recipe because it looks better. I love to eat them with shrimp sauce. I can't wait to try this recipe. Thanks!
Do you have a 'recipe for the marinara sauce...

yes here is my recipe for homemade marinara sauce :)
In this...what we can use instead of eggs..???
There are several things you can try - buttermilk, plain milk, or melted butter will probably work best in this case.
Aquafaba! It's the liquid from a can of beans! Great egg substitute!!!!
hi ! i'm excited to try your mozzarella sticks recipe. may i know what is italian style breadcrumbs? thanks!!
Can I bake these? If so what should I put the oven on?
I have made these before but I freeze the mozzarella sticks before I use them :)
Did you freeze the cheese first or just follow the recipe as its written. I'm making these tomorrow and everyone I've talked to has told me to freeze the cheese first.
I would love to know if we can bake these, as I can't eat anything deep fried :(
Any suggestions on how to make it without eggs? My daughter is allergic.
