Crispy breaded slices of mozzarella are deep-fried and served as Panko Breaded Mozzarella Sticks. They have no artificial flavors or preservatives, and they taste far better than the frozen box variety.

They are a big hit with family and friends every time. I adore serving them with Crab Rangoon Egg Rolls and Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings.


  1. 8 half-cut mozzarella string cheese sticks
  2. two eggs
  3. two tsp milk
  4. Two and a half cups panko crumbs
  5. One teaspoon dried basil
  6. and one tablespoon dried parsley
  7. One tsp of dehydrated oregano
  8. half a teaspoon of powdered garlic
  9. 1/4 cup of flour for all purposes
  10. Canola oil


  • Pour milk and eggs into a shallow basin.
  • In a shallow bowl or plate, combine panko breadcrumbs with garlic, parsley, basil, and oregano.
  • Fill a shallow basin or plate with flour.
  • Each mozzarella stick is dipped first in flour, then in egg mixture, then in panko breadcrumb mixture, and finally back into egg and breadcrumbs once again. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  • For 20 to 30 minutes, place uncovered in the freezer.
  • Preheat the oil in a dutch oven or deep fryer to 375 degrees.
  • A few at a time, cook the sticks until they are golden brown. It takes about a minute or so. blot with paper towels. Present with chipotle mayo or marinara.


  • When trying to keep the oil as close to 375 degrees as feasible, use a high temperature thermometer.
  • You may bake these as well. Spread some butter on it or use nonstick baking spray. Bake for 6–7 minutes at 400 degrees.
  • Just till brown, fry. Cheese that is overdone will start to seep out.
