One of my favorite appetizers is mozzarella sticks, so I decided to make my own Homemade Mozzarella Sticks to enjoy anytime I want to.
This is a partnered post with Lunchbox. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
So everyone is talking about The Big Game and I’m all, lets watch the commercials and eat way too much food. Because y’all, I don’t know a thing about football. Well, besides touchdowns and field goals. What I’m most interested in is the food and the commercials. But lets be honest, it’s mostly the food.
Because Homemade Mozzarella Sticks, y’all.
Oh my yum. Don’t these look delicious? And it’s such an easy recipe! Like, really easy.
How to Make Homemade Mozzarella Sticks
Here’s how easy it is:
Cut the mozzarella string cheese into halves.
Then, dip into egg.
Next, dip into panko bread crumbs mixture. For a thicker breading, repeat the process. But they’re absolutely fine with just one dip into each.
Then, place on a prepared baking sheet and bake in the oven.
See, I wasn’t lying when I said these Homemade Mozzarella Sticks were easy to make. Now just wait until you try them – so good!
I love how light and airy the coating is on these mozzarella sticks. It’s not overly thick so that you get a more balanced taste of coating AND cheese, rather than just the coating. That’s how you know you have the PERFECT mozzarella sticks.
And I imagine that they’re so much better than the fried variety you get at the restaurant (meaning that, maybe, you can eat just one more). I won’t tell – I promise.
Dip them in your favorite sauce (I used Chunky Tomato, Garlic & Onion) and enjoy! I used Ragu Chunky Tomato, Garlic & Onion because it’s full of tasty vegetables, contains two servings of veggies in every 1/2 cup of sauce, and contains 100% California Grown Tomatoes.
Warm melted cheese with a tasty panko bread crumb coating — it just doesn’t get much better than that, folks!
