These Baked Mozzarella Cheese Sticks are simple, delicious, and full of amazing flavor.

Prep Time 50 minutes mins

Cook Time 10 minutes mins

Total Time 1 hour hr



  • 12 sticks part-skim mozzarella string cheese
  • ¼ cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup Panko Bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon dried basil
  • teaspoon dried oregano
  • teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg


  • Cut cheese sticks in half and freeze until hard, about 30 minutes.

  • In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, panko breadcrumbs, parsley, basil, oregano, and garlic powder.

  • In a separate bowl, add the flour.

  • In a third bowl, add the egg and whisk well.

  • Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Dip frozen cheese sticks into the flour, shaking off any excess flour.

  • Place sticks on prepared baking sheet.

  • When all of the sticks are coated, freeze on the sheet for at least 15 minutes, or until ready to bake.

  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Place the cheese sticks in the oven and bake for 4-5 minutes, turn sticks over and bake for an additional 4-5 minutes, or until sticks are golden brown and soft.

  • Serve warm with marinara sauce or ranch.



  • You can make the cheese sticks in advance, freeze them on the baking sheet until frozen solid. Transfer to a Ziploc freezer bag and store in the freezer until ready to bake. These will keep in the freezer for up to one month.
