Review: Gluten-Free Mozzarella Sticks

Boy, I used to love mozzarella sticks as an appetizer in restaurants before I started the gluten-free diet.  I have yet to find a restaurant that serves them gluten-free and I haven’t attempted to make them from scratch, though I am sure I probably could.  On my weekly shopping trip to Earth Fare, I saw a sale on Health is Wealth Mozzarella Sticks ($3.00 on sale), so I picked up a box.  I knew Jon would be thrilled to see this find!


There are 12 small mozzarella sticks in this box.  Imagine a piece of string cheese cut in half – that is roughly the size of each stick.  I followed the directions on the box for cooking in the oven, as that is the recommended method.  My mozzarella sticks didn’t quite turn out like the ones on the box.


Umm….it seems like the cheese escaped!  I am not sure what I could have done differently to prevent this.  You know the saying “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover”?  Well, insert that saying here.  These mozzarella sticks were phenomenal!  They tasted great on their own and even better dipped in marinara sauce!  Jon is begging me to go back to Earth Fare to buy some more of the sticks while they are still on sale.

    Yes, this happened to me also, they were flattened and the cheese came out. Its nothing you did wrong. Following the directions apparently produces that result. But me and my son loved them, as they tasted real good! Maybe if we deep fried them? $3 is an amazing deal, I think I paid $7 or $8 for the box I bought.

    • Janet,

      They do taste really good! I check Earth Fare each time I go to see if they are on sale. Next time they are, I might buy them all! I wonder about deep frying as well.
