Mozzarella stick waffles are a quick snack that’s fun to make and delicious too! Make this 10 minute recipe using frozen breaded cheese sticks.
After a press in the waffle iron these crunchy, cheesy mozzarella sticks have more edges, more crunchy, cooked cheese and are perfect for dunking and eating.
I add even more cheese on top by sprinkling the waffled cheese sticks with crumbled Cotija cheese, plus a drizzle of Mexican crema.
Mozzarella stick waffles
I love to switch things up a bit, and it’s fun to elevate an already tasty snack, I took Farm Rich bread mozzarella sticks and baked them in a waffle iron.
Stay with me here. See, this ensures all the more nooks and crannies for a dipping sauce to adhere to. This hot and cheesy appetizer is amazing!
A slam dunk dipping sauce
Instead of the usual go to Italian marinara sauce, I went a little south of the border for a Mexican influenced twist. You could use any kind of dipping sauce, but with the Mexican flavors, my tomatillo salsa verde is perfect for dunking.
Whether you serve the mozzarella stick waffles for snacks during the BIG Sunday football game, March Madness, or just a simple get-together with friends, they will disappear quickly!
The poppers have a little kick to them that’s balanced with a smooth layer of cream cheese for back up. You can never have too much food on game day. Enjoy!
