What Makes Olive Garden Fried Mozzarella So Good

Families have been going to the Olive Garden since it opened in 1982.  But it didn’t take long for the Olive Garden Fried Mozzarella to make an impression and become a fan favorite.  These cheese sticks or triangles are made with tons of mozzarella cheese and a combination of Italian breadcrumbs and seasonings.  They are cut into triangles to make it easy to dip each corner into your favorite marinara sauce.


  • 16 ounces Mozzarella Cheese
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups Italian Breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoons Italian seasonings
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch


  • If your cheese is in a brick, slice it thick and cut the cheese crossways to make triangles. Beat the eggs with water and set aside. Mix the bread crumbs, garlic salt, and Italian seasonings and set aside. Blend the flour with cornstarch and set aside.
  • Heat vegetable oil for deep frying to 360 degrees. 
  • Dip cheese in flour and cornstarch blend, then in egg wash and coat with breadcrumbs.
  • Place cheese carefully in hot oil and fry until golden; this takes just a few seconds so watch carefully. When golden, remove from hot oil and drain.
  • Serve with your favorite Italian spaghetti sauce and enjoy. 

Recipe Tips for the Cook

  • You may want to chill the cheese before battering to help ensure it doesn’t melt in during the frying.
  • You can also fry cheeses like Paneer, Queso Blanco, or Hallumoini as they have high melting points.
  • Ensuring the cheese is well-battered is helpful so the cheese does not ooze out of the coating.
  • Do not fry too many pieces at once as the oil temperature may drop too much. You should fry a few pieces at a time.
