  1. Italian-style dried breadcrumbs – 1 1/2 cups
  2. Freshly grated Parmesan cheese – 1 1/3 cups (divided)
  3. Salt – 1 teaspoon
  4. Mozzarella cheese sticks – 2 packages (16 ounces each)
  5. Large eggs – 4 (beaten)
  6. Vegetable oil – 1 1/2 cups


  1. Breadcrumb Mixture Preparation: In a medium bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, 1 cup of the grated Parmesan, and salt. This is your crunchy coating.
  2. Cheese Stick Prep: Take each mozzarella stick and cut it in half. This makes them the perfect size for snacking!
  3. Coating Process: Now, the fun part. Beat the eggs in a shallow bowl. Dip each cheese stick half into the eggs, ensuring a complete coat. Let the excess egg drip off. Then, roll the cheese in the breadcrumb mixture. Make sure it’s well-coated. For extra crunch, repeat the egg and breadcrumb dip.
  4. Freezing: Place the coated cheese sticks on a baking sheet. Cover them and freeze for about 2 hours. This step is crucial for keeping the cheese from melting too fast when frying.
  5. Frying the Sticks: Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Fry the cheese sticks in batches until they’re golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Keep an eye on them; they cook quickly!
  6. Serving: Transfer the golden beauties to plates. Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan. Voilà! Ready to serve.
