Fried Mozzarella Sticks

Updated: May 25

"Mozzarella sticks are very easy to make at home. They're deep-fried until golden and crispy on the outside, with melted gooey cheese on the inside. They're so good and take just minutes to fry! Try dipping them in a marinara sauce!”

Fried Mozzarella Sticks

Servings – 8 Prep Time – 15 Minutes Cook Time – 10 Minutes Ingredients:

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 1/2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/3 cup cornstarch

  • 2 cups oil for frying, or as needed

  • 1 (16 ounce) package mozzarella cheese sticks, freeze for 2 hours before cooking to prevent cheese leakage when frying.


Whisk water and eggs together in a small bowl.

In a separate bow mix bread crumbs and garlic powdee together.

Blend flour and cornstarch together in a third bowl.

Heat oil to 365 degrees in a large, heavy saucepan.

Dredge a mozzarella stick in flour; shake off excess.

Dip into egg mixture. Lift up so excess egg drips back in the bowl. Press into bread crumbs to coat. Repeat this step one more time to double coat for a crunchy coating.

Place breaded mozzarella stick on a plate or wire rack. Repeat with remaining mozzarella sticks.

Use a spider spoon or a pair of tongs to lower 3 to 4 mozzarella sticks into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, about 30 seconds.

Remove from heat and drain on paper towels.

Repeat to fry remaining mozzarella sticks.

Serve hot with a side of warm marinara sauce!


Substitute one coating or both of the Italian bread crumbs for panko bread crumbs. This will have a crispier texture.

After dredging process freeze breaded Mozzerella sticks for 2 hours before frying. This will help with cheese leakage from the breading while frying.
