I always loved the ooey gooey stretchiness of a mozzarella stick, and they are really easy to make yourself.

There are a few things to consider when making these.

They should be breaded twice so they have a thick enough shell to keep the cheese inside.

The other thing to do is freeze them for at least two hours before frying, otherwise the cheese will likely ooze out of the shell, and that’s no fun.

The upside to this is you can make these a day ahead of time and keep them in the freezer, and fry them whenever you’re ready to serve.

Serve it up alongside some marinara for dunking, and you’re ready to go.

To get started, cut the mozzarella block into sticks, and dip each stick into egg, then in bread crumbs.

Ingredients

  • 16 oz block whole milk mozzarella cheese
  • 2/3 cup italian style breadcrumbs
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 extra large eggs

Instructions

  • Cut the block of cheese into 1/2 inch sticks.  I had about 12.  Place the eggs in a bowl and whisk to combine.  Place the bread crumbs in a second bowl, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Take each cheese stick and dunk it into the egg, letting the excess drip off.
  • Then coat in the breadcrumbs, shake off the excess, and place on a plate.  Repeat with the remaining cheese sticks.  Once those are all done, take each cheese stick through the egg and breadcrumbs again for a second coating.  Place the mozzarella sticks in an airtight container and freeze for two hours.
  • Heat up a fryer to 365 degrees F, and fry for about 30 seconds until golden brown.  Serve with marinara or your favorite dunking sauce.  Enjoy!
