Fried Mozzarella Bites

Fried Mozzarella Bites are a delicious and easy-to-make appetizer or snack. Here’s a simple recipe for you to enjoy:


  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, cut into bite-sized cubes
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (seasoned or plain)
  • Oil for frying
  • Marinara sauce for dipping


1. Prepare the Breading Station:

  • Set up a breading station with three shallow bowls. Place flour in one bowl, beaten eggs in another, and breadcrumbs in the third.

2. Coat Mozzarella:

  • Roll each mozzarella cube in the flour, ensuring it’s coated evenly.
  • Dip the floured mozzarella cube into the beaten eggs, making sure it’s fully coated.
  • Roll the egg-coated mozzarella cube in the breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere the breadcrumbs.

3. Repeat Breading:

  • For an extra crispy coating, you can repeat the process by dipping the breadcrumb-coated mozzarella cube back into the beaten eggs and then into the breadcrumbs again.

4. Freeze (Optional):

  • For better results, you can freeze the breaded mozzarella bites for about 30 minutes. This helps them hold their shape during frying.

5. Heat Oil:

  • Heat oil in a deep fryer or a heavy-bottomed pan to 350°F (175°C).

6. Fry Mozzarella Bites:

  • Carefully drop a few breaded mozzarella cubes into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, usually 1-2 minutes. Avoid overcrowding the frying pan to ensure even cooking.

7. Drain:

  • Use a slotted spoon to remove the fried mozzarella bites from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.

8. Serve:

  • Serve the fried mozzarella bites immediately while they’re hot and crispy.

9. Dipping Sauce:

  • Serve with marinara sauce or your favorite dipping sauce.

These Fried Mozzarella Bites are a crowd-pleaser and perfect for parties or game nights. The crispy exterior and gooey, melted cheese inside make them a delightful treat. Enjoy!
