Crispy on the outside and ooey-gooey on the inside, mozzarella sticks are a go-to bar snack, but with the help of this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week, you don’t need to belly up to the bar to enjoy them. Giada De Laurentiis’ 5-star recipe comes together with only a handful of ingredients, including creamy fresh mozzarella, which stars in the filling. In place of a traditional breadcrumb blanket, Giada opts for a coating that’s laced with Parmesan cheese, which offers a rich, slightly nutty flavor. Serve the fried sticks with a homemade tomato-garlic sauce for hands-on dipping.
