Fried Mozzarella Squares

I mentioned last week that I would post some super bowl recipes we chose in our household……Well this one was one of our favorites!! Very simple yet delicious.

You can see that I cut mine in cubes, well sort of…. but you can cut yours however you wish. Mine don’t look so totally perfect but I think that is OK.

I also used seasoned breadcrumbs, healthy ones though!! No trans fats, preservatives and all that other crap :-) You may buy plain and season however you like as well.


This picture depicts my little work station!! Make sure you fry the mozzarella no more than 30 seconds to 1 minute as they will melt. Also drain on a paper towel and remove 2-3 minutes after otherwise the paper towel will stick to the cheese…..not good!!


Fried Mozzarella Squares

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 4 servings


8 oz package reduced fat mozzarella cheese
2 eggs, beaten
1-2 cups bread crumbs, mine were seasoned but be ware of brand out there with trans fat and tons of crap
oil for frying



Set up a breading station with one bowl for the eggs and one for the breadcrumbs.

Cut the mozzarella into cubes. Bread each cube by coating it in the egg, and then in the bread crumbs. Set on a baking cookie sheet or other baking pan. Once all the cubes are breaded place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.

Heat your deep fryer to 375F.  Make sure you have enough oil to cover the cubes. Carefully drop a few of the cubes into the oil. Let them fry for 30 seconds to 1 minute until golden.

Remove and reserve on a paper towel-lined plate.  Continue until all of the bites are fried.


  1. Wow, these look great! And super easy! I love cheese!

  2. Sounds delicious! I loved mozzarella sticks as a kid and these sound like a more healthful, sophisticated, and homemade version! Can’t wait to try these, thanks for sharing the recipe!

  3. Hi I love your blog anyways I was wondering if there is anyway you can make these with out frying them?

  4. Redixon,

    I actually don’t think there is any other way to make these. If I were to put them in the oven they would melt so I guess frying them is the only way, sorry :-( and thanks for visiting my blog

  5. If you put the cheese in a single layer in the freezer after breading it & don’t thaw it out before frying the outside will get crisp & the cheese will get hot without melting. Also nice to have handy for a quick snack, just throw them in a bag once they’re frozen.
