  • 24 Mozzarella string cheese sticks
  • 2 Large eggs * read notes
  • 1 Cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs (GF if needed)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Whole wheat flour (or GF cup for cup flour)
  • Marinara sauce, for serving


  • Unwrap all the mozzarella sticks. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs. In a ziploc bag, combine the bread crumbs, Italian seasoning and salt and shake to combine. Spread into a large, rimmed plate. Finally, spread the flour into a large rimmed plate.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Then, cover one mozzarella stick in flour. Then, dip it into the egg, shaking off any excess off. Using your other dry hand (very important - keep this hand nice and dry) cover the mozzarella stick in the bread crumb mixture and then place onto the pan. Repeat with all sticks.
  • Freeze 2 hours.
  • Once ready, heat your oven to 400 degrees and bake your sticks directly from the freezer for about 8-10 minutes until soft but they still hold their shape.
  • Serve immediately with marinara sauce and DEVOUR!


*You only NEED 2 eggs, but I recommend using 3 to make it easier..you'll just have some leftover
