This delicious Mozzarella Fritter Bake is a comfort food classic that's perfect for a family dinner. It's cheesy, crispy, and incredibly satisfying. Let's dive into this easy-to-follow recipe that's adjusted to serve 4 people.


  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Fresh basil for garnish (optional)
  • Marinara sauce for serving (optional)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk until well combined.
  3. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until you get a smooth batter.
  4. Fold the shredded mozzarella cheese into the batter until evenly distributed.
  5. Using a spoon or your hands, form the batter into small fritters (about the size of a golf ball).
  6. Roll each fritter in the bread crumbs until fully coated. Set aside on a plate.
  7. Heat about 1/2 inch of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  8. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the fritters to the skillet, a few at a time to avoid overcrowding.
  9. Fry the fritters for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  10. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the fritters to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  11. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  12. Arrange the fried fritters in a single layer in a baking dish.
  13. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the fritters are fully cooked through and the cheese is melted.
  14. Garnish with fresh basil if desired.
  15. Serve the Mozzarella Fritter Bake with marinara sauce on the side for dipping.

This Mozzarella Fritter Bake is a hit with both kids and adults alike. The combination of crispy exterior and gooey, cheesy interior is simply irresistible. Enjoy this dish as a main course or a hearty appetizer. Happy cooking!
