Breaded mozzarella, also known as mozzarella sticks, is a snack that has taken TikTok and Instagram by storm. Restaurants have caught on to this trend and incorporated it into their menus. Don't overpay—make this snack at home. It will take you less than 10 minutes.

Sweet, salty, and noticeably milky, mozzarella melts under high heat, stretching endlessly. You can talk about mozzarella for a long time. It's one of the most famous Italian delicacies.

It was invented in ancient times, and by the 3rd century, it began to be produced on a larger scale. Initially, it was made with the poor in mind, but it quickly became so popular that all Italians fell in love with it. Do you have a piece of mozzarella at home? Coat it in delicious breadcrumbs and savor the taste of popular mozzarella sticks. They will disappear from the table in no time.

Breaded mozzarella — the hit of any party

Organizing a party requires proper preparations. You must have music and good food. Simple salads, muffins, or finger foods that you can pick up with your hand will work well. Usually, we prepare skewers, tortilla rolls, or pigs in a blanket.

Want to surprise your guests? Serve them breaded mozzarella, and this snack will be the first to disappear from the table. It will take you less than 10 minutes. Simply cut the cheese into long strips and coat it in egg and breadcrumbs before frying them in hot oil. The crunchy coating pairs perfectly with the mild, stretchy cheese. It's one of those snacks that doesn't need many accompaniments. You can sprinkle a little salt on it or serve it with your favorite sauce, such as Thousand Island or remoulade.
