One of the best things about delicious chain restaurants like the beloved TGI Friday’s? Their iconic appetizers. With this copycat recipe for TGI Friday’s mozzarella sticks, you need never crave this amazing app again! Watch the video below, brought to us by Popsugar Food, and learn how to pull off everyone’s favorite finger food.




  • String Cheese
  • Flour
  • Egg Wash (Eggs and Milk)
  • Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. Dried Parsley
  • 1 Tsp. Garlic Salt
  • 1 Tsp. Seasoning Salt
  • Vegetable Oil

To get these mozzarella sticks to taste straight from the restaurant, keep a few things in mind. Make sure you dip your cheese sticks in an extra coating of egg wash for an extra crunchy taste. Also, before you stick your sticks into your hot oil (you’ll want this at 350 degrees exactly, so consider investing in a candy thermometer) make sure you’ve let them sit in the freezer for at least an hour.

Then serve hot to your party guests with a side of marinara sauce! What do you think of this copycat recipe? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
