At the request of my lovely 12 year old daughter, I am posting these, one of her favorite foods. We searched for a recipe together and ended up adapting one to suit our tastes. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup flour
  • 1 cup Italian style breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 lb mozzarella cheese, cut into 3/4 inch x 3/4 inch strips (or you can use string cheese and cut each in half)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup jarred pizza sauce or 1 cup marinara sauce


  1. Whisk eggs and milk together.
  2. Coat each piece of cheese with flour, then dip in egg and then roll in bread crumbs.
  3. Dip in egg and crumbs again.
  4. Freeze before frying.
  5. Heat oil in skillet and cook sticks for about a minute on each side, or until golden and before cheese starts to leak.
  6. Drain on paper towels.
  7. Serve with sauce for dipping.

This was a hit with my family. I found that it was more effective in keeping the bread crumbs on when I dipped it in the egg before and after rolling it in the flour and the bread crumbs. It also helped to keep the cheese within the coating a lot better. I still haven't perfected it but I'm getting there.

It is too bad that I can not rate them higher then a five star! I have been trying to find a mozzarella chesse stick that did not have an over-powering spice mix flavor. Now that I have, I will ONLY make this recipe for my cheese sticks. What a shame that my son was sick on the day that I made them, I had to eat them ALL on my own.

Superb! I dipped them in egg first before the flour to help it stick better, then continued as written. I got them thoroughly frozen before cooking, and they did not leak at all! They had a lovely thick golden crust and were just yummy.
