These mozzarella sticks are not only delicious, but they’re also incredibly easy to make. With just a few simple ingredients and a little bit of time, you can have a crowd-pleasing appetizer that will have everyone cheering.


  • 1 pound string cheese, cut into sticks
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Oil for frying (vegetable oil, canola oil, or peanut oil)
  • Marinara sauce for dipping


H3: Prepare the cheese sticks

  1. Cut the string cheese into sticks that are about the width of your finger. If the cheese is too soft, freeze it for 30 minutes before cutting to make it easier to handle.

H3: Set up the breading station

  1. In three separate bowls, set up your breading station. In the first bowl, add the flour. In the second bowl, whisk together the eggs. In the third bowl, combine the panko breadcrumbs, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning.

H3: Bread the cheese sticks

  1. Dredge each cheese stick in the flour, then dip it in the egg wash, and finally coat it in the panko breadcrumb mixture. Make sure the cheese sticks are evenly coated.

H3: Fry the cheese sticks

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet or pot over medium heat. The oil should be hot enough to sizzle when you drop a breadcrumb in it, but not so hot that it smokes.

  2. Fry the cheese sticks in batches for 1-2 minutes per side, or until golden brown and crispy.

H3: Drain and serve

  1. Drain the cheese sticks on paper towels and serve immediately with marinara sauce for dipping.


  • For extra crispy cheese sticks, double dip them in the egg wash and breadcrumb mixture.
  • If you don’t have panko breadcrumbs, you can use regular breadcrumbs, but they won’t be as crispy.
  • You can also bake the cheese sticks instead of frying them. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
  • Serve the cheese sticks with your favorite dipping sauce, such as marinara sauce, ranch dressing, or honey mustard.
  • Get creative with your dipping sauces! Try a buffalo sauce, pesto sauce, or even a sweet chili sauce.
  • Make sure your oil is hot enough before frying the cheese sticks. If the oil is not hot enough, the cheese sticks will be greasy.
  • Don’t overcrowd the pan when frying the cheese sticks. This will lower the temperature of the oil and make the cheese sticks soggy.

With these tips and tricks, you’re sure to make mozzarella sticks that are the MVP of your Super Bowl party. So get cooking, and enjoy the game!
