Mozzarella saticks from scratch are the best- plain and simple. A block of mozzarella is cut into sticks, breaded, and fried until perfection. To fry successfully, are are two main rules to follow: use a fry thermometer to monitor your temperature and do not over crowd the pan (it brings down the temperature of the oil). You will want to use an oil that has a high smoking point like peanut oil or other vegetable oil. The video below will teach you how to make wonderfully delicious and crunchy mozzarella sticks.
