How to Make Panko Mozzarella Sticks

Step-by-Step

  1. Slice string cheese pieces in half, for a total of 32 pieces.
  2. Place flour in a small bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and milk.
  4. In another separate bowl, combine panko bread crumbs with parsley flakes.
  5. One by one, roll mozzarella sticks in flour, then dunk in egg/milk mixture, then place in panko crumbs. Use your hand to sweep crumbs all over the mozzarella stick. Gently remove and place on a tray or cookie sheet. Repeat until all mozzarella sticks are coated.
  6. ***Place tray in freezer for 20 to 30 minutes to flash freeze.***
  7. Heat 1 1/2 inches canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add mozzarella sticks 8 at a time. Watch closely and turn over to evenly brown, cooking less than 2 minutes. Do not allow cheese to bubble and leak.
  8. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.
  9. Serve immediately with warm marinara sauce or ranch.
