The secret to the best mozzarella cheese sticks

To get the cheese sticks crispy on the outside and goey cheesy on the inside, there is a step you can’t miss. Once the cheese is dipped in the flavourful coating, the cheese sticks have to be frozen for one hour before they are cooked.

This step is super important because if you skip it, the cheese will melt, and you will get melted cheese instead of crispy cheese sticks.

How long does it take to make gluten-free Italian mozzarella cheese sticks?

This gluten-free recipe takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish.

The hot cheese snack is not deep fried. Instead, the cheese is flash-fried in about half an inch of oil. This will create a tasty, crispy coating with goey cheese inside. Soo good!

These gluten-free cheese sticks are perfect for any occasion, whether you’re hosting a party or just want a quick and easy snack.

Serve as is or with fresh tomato marinara sauce.
