Thrifty Fried Mozzarella recipe

Our kids love fried mozzarella. When ever there is a special occasion and we go out to eat, our children beg for the fried mozzarella appetizers. So to solve their craving for breaded and fried cheese, we make them our home made “fried” mozzarella.


  • String cheese
  • Bread crumbs
  • milk – 1/4 cup or less – just enough to wet the cheese
  • marinara, or spaghetti sauce, or ranch, or dip to your liking

After a quick soaking in milk, gently place the cheese bits into a bowl of bread crumbs. Have them gently pat the bread crumbs onto the cheese. Remove the breaded cheese and gently place on a cooking sheet.
