READY IN: 32mins




  • Slice string cheese pieces in half, for a total of 32 pieces.
  • Place flour in a small bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and milk.
  • In another separate bowl, combine panko bread crumbs with parsley flakes.
  • TO ASSEMBLE: One by one, roll mozzarella sticks in flour, then dunk in egg/milk mixture, then place in panko crumbs. Use your hand to sweep crumbs all over the mozzarella stick. Gently remove and place on a tray or cookie sheet. Repeat until all mozzarella sticks are coated.
  • ***Place tray in freezer for 20 to 30 minutes to flash freeze.***.
  • TO COOK: Heat 1 1/2 inches canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add mozzarella sticks 8 at a time. Watch closely and turn over to evenly brown, cooking less than 2 minutes. Do not allow cheese to bubble and leak.
  • Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.
  • Serve immediately with warm marinara sauce.
