RECIPE – Caffe Villa Verde’s Fried Mozzarella Sticks

Fried mozzarella sticks are always a favorite in our family!

Here’s the recipe for Deep fried Mozzarella Sticks from the now gone, “Caffe Verde” at the Disneyland Hotel



Yield: 4 servings


1 pound whole mozzarella cheese

3 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup flour

1 cup bread crumbs

1/4 cup parsley, chopped

4 cups vegetable oil, for frying

Marinara sauce


Cut mozzarella cheese into 3-inch sticks about 1/2 inch thick. Combine bread crumbs and chopped parsley in a small bowl and set up beaten eggs in another. Place flour on a plate. First thoroughly dust cheese sticks in flour, shake off any excess. Dip in beaten egg, coating thoroughly, and then in bread crumbs. Press lightly to ensure an even coating. Refrigerate 15 minutes to allow breading to set up.

In the meantime, heat oil in a heavy skillet just large enough to allow for 2 inches of oil. When oil is hot, fry a few cheese sticks at a time to a golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Repeat until all cheese has been fried.

Serve hot with marinara sauce on the side for dipping.
