Recipe by Brandyn Baker @blackdog_bbq



  • 10 mozzarella cheese sticks (more if desired)
  • 2 C flour
  • 2-3 T creole seasoning
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ C heavy cream
  • 2 C Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1-gallon peanut oil
  • Marinara sauce to serve



  1. Start by setting up your breading station with 3 separate bowls: In one bowl, combine flour and creole seasoning. In the second, mix eggs and heavy cream. In the third, add the Italian breadcrumbs.
  2. To bread the mozzarella sticks: dredge in flour before dunking in the egg wash. Finally, coat well with Italian breadcrumbs. Repeat this process as needed.

**Note: I refrigerated these on a wire rack overnight to help them firm up, but this is not necessary.

  1. Add peanut oil to a deep fryer. Meanwhile, transfer the breaded mozzarella sticks from the wire rack to a deep-frying basket. Once the oil registers about 350 degrees, place the loaded basket in the deep fryer and cook until the mozzarella sticks are golden brown, about 30 seconds.
  2. Place the deep-fried mozzarella sticks on a plate and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Serve with marinara sauce & enjoy!
