Technically a mozzarella stick is already grilled cheese…The bread just dried up, fell apart and reunited in the form of crumbs surrounding that delicious stick of mozzarella! Of course, I wasn’t about to make a mozzarella stick and call it a grilled cheese, so I went about breading this delicious sandwich with panko crumbs to create the Mozzarella Stick Grilled Cheese!

The result was a super crunchy, super stringy cheesy delight!

    Mozazarella cheese stick is always my favorite. We usually fry it, but your version looks good. I would try it some time. Thanks for the recipe!

    I love me some mozzarella sticks.

    You should have done the same thing except put mozzarella sticks IN the grilled cheese. I mean, the calories are probably sky-high anyway, right? This looks to diiiiie for though…

      Haha yeah, well I think the calories are sky-high in most of these! Fortunately my 25 year old male body has the amazing ability to metabolize all of them without gaining weight! If you Google Mozzarella Stick Grilled Cheese, Denny has actually done one in that style.
