Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

Mozzarella sticks are one of America’s favorite cheesy snacks consisting of battered, breaded, and deep-fried pieces of mozzarella cheese. 

Although they are traditionally served as an appetizer with marinara sauce, these cheesy sticks can also be paired with plum sauce, honey mustard sauce, raspberry sauce, Ranch dressing, or barbecue sauce.

Mozzarella sticks were not common before the late 1970s and the early 1980s, and some food experts believe that they were first served in sports bars and bowling alleys.

 

REHEAT AND STORAGE

Reheat refrigerated or frozen mozzarella sticks in the oven. To reheat refrigerated cheese sticks, place them in an oven preheated to 350 degrees F for about 5 minutes, or until heated through. 

Store (completely cooled) homemade mozzarella sticks in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days.
