6 New and Exciting Ways to Eat Your Mozzarella Sticks

Who doesn’t love healthy mozzarella sticks? This delicious snack, appetizer, or meal is creamy and crunchy all at the same time. If you enjoy standard mozzarella sticks, you will definitely want to try one or all of these six great recipes!


Add extra crunch and a savory taste to each mozzarella stick when you wrap it in bacon! Simply wrap each mozzarella stick in a strip of bacon and bake them as you typically would. If you prefer the bacon very crispy, leave them in the oven a little longer than normal.


Cook your mozzarella sticks as you normally would, but then add all your favorite nacho ingredients on top! Pile shredded cheese, chopped tomatoes, black olives, and sour cream for a blend of Italian and Mexican. Looking to add an extra kick? Add sliced jalapenos to your mozzachos. 

Stuffed Grilled Cheese

What’s better than melted cheese? More melted cheese! In between layers of bread and your favorite sliced cheese, add some already-baked mozzarella sticks. When you bite into this stuffed grilled cheese sandwich, you’ll experience intertwining layers of crunch and melted cheeses – in other words – a whole lot of delicious!


Bring a little bit of Buffalo to your cheese stick mozzarella sticks. When the mozzarella sticks have finished cooking, toss them in hot sauce. Go with mild if you don’t like spicy or hot if you’re a lover of all things spicy. A medium hot sauce is a perfect compromise between the two. Serve these Buffalo’d mozzarella sticks with chunky blue cheese for dipping if you want to execute a true Buffalo-wing flavor profile!

On A Burger 

Creative burger toppings are all the rage these days. Step up your at-home burgers by topping them with mozzarella sticks! This extra element adds flavor, crunch, and melty cheese. You can even top your mozzarella sticks with a marinara sauce for a complete Italian addition to an American classic. 

With Different Dips

Another way to incorporate something new with healthy mozzarella sticks is to have more than just marinara sauce for dipping. In addition to this classic dipping sauce, consider a dip flight so you can experience a variety of flavor combinations with each bite. The options are limitless but you can’t go wrong with ranch dressing, honey mustard, chipotle aioli, and sweet chili alongside the marinara sauce.

There are so many great ways to enjoy healthy mozzarella sticks. This delicious food provides an easy foundation for all of these great dishes. No matter what type of snack, appetizer, or entrée you’re craving, one of these dishes can satisfy it!
