Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

Homemade Mozzarella sticks are better than anything you can get anywhere else, probably just because they are homemade but still…

Depending on the bread crumbs used, you can flavor them any way you’d like and still only use three ingredients!

Hot, gooey, melted cheese and full flavors combine to make these fun cheese sticks.

Dip them in Marinara Sauce, Ranch Dressing even Honey Mustard.

For this recipe, I used Garlic and Herb bread crumbs, but you could use any flavor or even use plain and add your own herbs and spices to make them completely your own flavor.

I also toyed with the idea of purchasing string cheese in another flavor, like pepper jack to change them up a bit.

I am thinking the possibilities are limited to only what you can find at the store, which might be even more than I could find.

So have some fun and make these THREE ingredient Mozzarella Sticks tonight!

Yep, that’s right, Three Ingredient Mozzarella Sticks!

All you need is string cheese, bread crumbs and eggs. So easy and such a fun after school (or work) snack and they are ready in just a few minutes.


P.S. I drastically failed at the A to Z Challenge this month. Actually, I didn’t. I have all the recipes complete, photos taken, etc. I do not have a blog post for each one nor do I have the photos edited. So I gave up. Life happens and it got in the way of completing this year. I will still be sharing ALL of the two, three and four ingredient recipes I had scheduled for this month, it will be just be across May too. Pretend you didn’t notice I failed. Thank you!

Servings 12 Sticks


  • 1 package 12 sticks of mozzarella string cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup Garlic & Herb Italian breadcrumbs or any flavor


  • Remove the mozzarella string cheese from the wrappers and lay them on a baking pan.
  • Freeze the cheese sticks for about 30 minutes or so, until hard (keeps them from blowing up in the oven)
  • In one bowl, crack the egg and whisk
  • In another bowl, add the Italian breadcrumbs.
  • Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray, or double up and cover your baking sheet with foil and then spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Dip your frozen cheese sticks first in the egg, then roll to coat with the breadcrumbs. I actually re-dip mine so I can make sure they are covered in enough breadcrumbs. If you decide to do this, just redip in the egg and then re-roll in the breadcrumbs a second time.
  • Repeat the process for each remaining cheese stick, placing them on the baking sheet.
  • Send the sticks back to the freezer for about 20 minutes.
  • Remove from freezer and pop pan in oven. Bake at 400 degrees for about 5 minutes, flip the cheese sticks over and bake for an additional 4-5 minutes. Don’t walk away at this point. Watch them. Remove when you see cheese bubbling. Serve immediately and Enjoy!
