The big Game Day is fast approaching and I have you covered for more snack ideas! These Wafflized Mozzarella Sticks with Salsa start out with frozen mozzarella sticks that get the waffle treatment. 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 for the big game day party.
I add even more cheese on top like a drizzle of Mexican Crema and crumbled Cotija to bump up the cheese factor.
I’m excited that today’s post is sponsored by my friends over at Farm Rich. They have the perfect defense against hunger on Game Day and the perfect go-to snacks you can eat in no time. Plus, they are having a #HalfTimeHero campaign for the Big Game. More on that below.
I love to switch it up a bit here, and wanting to elevate an already tasty snack, I decided that the Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks would be perfect to put in the waffle iron. Stay with me here, see this ensures all the more nooks and crannies for dipping sauce and more cheese to adhere to. I was right and these Wafflized Mozzarella Sticks are killer!
Instead of the usual go to Italian marinara sauce, I went a little south of the border for a Mexican influenced twist. Cotija cheese gets crumbled over, some Mexican Crema drizzled and plenty of different salsas like my Tomatillo Green Salsa for dunking. These Wafflized Mozzarella Sticks are amazing!

Farm Rich snacks and appetizers are a great way to cheer on your favorite team for Game Day. Whatever team your siding with, everyone can agree that less time in the kitchen means more time watching the game and that’s a good thing. Were talking Real-Life Good food here and what better way then starting off with some crunchtastic Mozzarella Sticks.
Just remember to wafflize them and also pick up some Farm Rich Jalapeño Peppers. They 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!
