This recipe was great. I followed the basic steps to the recipe & used a few alterations. 1st I crushed up some doritos & mixed them with panko crumbs. I took the mozzarella sticks & coated them in flour, tapped off the excess floor & drenched it in egg. Then I rolled in breadcrumbs until they were fully coated. I also made some original kind as well. I mixed Italian breadcrumbs with panko, Italian seasoning & garlic powder. I followed the recipe by dipping in flour & egg. I let them all freeze together for 30 minutes. I heated up some vegetable oil. You don't need a lot. I then let them dry on both sides using a utensil to flip them. I let them cook about a minute or 2 on both sides. Don't let them cook too long because it's just cheese. I let them dry on paper towel & heated up some marinara. The dorito mozzarella sticks turned out pretty good. I just wanted to try something different. The original tasted just like restaraunt MS's. From now on I'll be making my own.

I wasted a whole package of cheese sticks. The freeze time wasn't enough to prevent them from falling apart in the hot oil and what was salvageable was not very good. I'm not sure what went wrong, but this was not palatable for us. I only cooked five in the first batch but threw away the rest to avoid having to wash off the breading and try again. Thanks for sharing the recipe and I'm glad it went well for some reviewers.

This recipe is a keeper...my favorite food is Mozzarella Sticks and I think I have had a million different kind....I love this recipe...Also, for people who can't find fresh mozzarella you can use the mozzarella cheese sticks (one's you would give your kids to eat) that you can buy at the grocery store and those work great too!

This is the way you make cheese stick.. Your oil most likely was not hot enough and the reason they fell apart or you simply just over cooked.. Taste great thanks for sharing..

Mine turned out a mess. Haha :) I certainly do not blame it on the recipe though. I didn't quite coat them enough with the breading (and I added a couple of tablespoons of water to thin out the egg) - both of which I do not recommend! Next time I will probably double-dip into the egg and breadcrumbs so that the casing is nice sturdy. The end result is tasty though :D Made for PAC Spring 2009.

Very simple, easy to follow recipe. Who knew that one of my kiddos favorite fast food snack was this easy! And the best part for me was they didn't taste freezer burnt like they sometimes do at the restaurants. For a little extra kick, I did add a few drops of hot sauce to the egg. It was very tasty! Served this with ranch dressing for dipping. Thanks for sharing. Made for New Kids on the Block tag game. Loved it!
