Mozzarella sticks are elongated pieces of battered or breaded mozzarella. In the US, this 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 finger foods such as buffalo wings, potato skins, fried zucchini, or even nachos. Though mozzarella cheese is Italian, mozzarella sticks are not known to have originated in Italy.

Mozzarella sticks may be served with tomato[1] 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.

Mozzarella sticks with raspberry sauce are part of the regional cuisine of New York's Capital District.[2][3]
