Mozzarella Cheese Bites Recipe

cheese bites

Getting ready for a fish fry after a successful fishing trip with my son Robert I was looking for a good side dish, so I went to his blog (, and decided to give this Mozzarella Cheese Bites Recipe a try. This is a simple recipe using Italian bread crumbs, egg, and garlic powder.

The cheese deep fries very quickly, so watch them closely so they don’t overcook. I used my deep fryer to cook this recipe, but you can use a heavy saucepan if you don’t have one available.

Serve with marinara sauce – or spice it up a little bit with chili or shrimp sauce.

This would also be a great appetizer for a game day party.
