Mozzarella sticks are elongated pieces of battered or breaded mozzarella. In US the deep-fried snack is often served at restaurants as an appetizer or as North American pub fare. Mozzarella sticks are sometimes added to an "appetizer sampler" that may include other snacks like buffalo wings, potato skins, fried zucchini, or even nachos.
Mozzarella sticks may be served with tomato or marinara sauce, as well as plum sauce, jalapeño jelly, barbecue sauce, honey mustard sauce, and ranch dressing. Cheeses other than mozzarella are also fried, including provolone, cheddar, and American.
Famous quotes containing the word sticks:
“One sticks to an opinion because he prides himself on having come to it on his own, and another because he has taken great pains to learn it and is proud to have grasped it: and so both do so out of vanity.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
