These crispy, golden treats are a universally beloved appetizer, perfect for gatherings, movie nights, or when you’re in the mood for a cheesy, satisfying snack.

This recipe is not just about crafting a delicious snack; it’s about turning simple ingredients into a memorable, shareable delight that encourages everyone to gather around and enjoy the moment.


For the Mozzarella Sticks:

  • 1 pound (about 450g) of block mozzarella cheese (Avoid pre-shredded cheese, as it contains anti-caking agents that can affect melting.)

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 1/2 cups of Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning (or a mix of dried oregano, basil, and parsley)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

For Serving:

  • Marinara sauce, warmed
  • Fresh basil leaves, for garnish (optional)
