10 Easy Recipes With String Cheese

If you’re like me, you think of string cheese as individually wrapped, stringy cheese snacks. You probably don’t know a lot of recipes with string cheese.

Fortunately, there are a few out there. It seems as though each one is cheesier and tastier than the last.

So if you want to try something new with your string cheese, you’re in the right place.

This list includes everything from mozzarella sticks to pasta salad. There are recipes for meatball sliders and pizza bombs, too! 

So settle in and check out these recipes with string cheese. Who knows? You might find a new favorite. 

1. Gooey Cheese Sticks (Fried or Baked)

Never buy sub-par frozen cheese sticks again.

This recipe will allow you to make your own, and they taste so much better. They aren’t hard to make, either. 

You’ll start with string cheese snacks. Then, you’ll bread them and fry them. (Baking them is also an option.) 

They are crunchy and flavorful on the outside and full of stringy, gooey mozzarella.

Serve them with a side of marinara and call it a day. They’ll fly off the plate.

2. Doritos Mozzarella Sticks

Here’s another similar recipe for mozzarella sticks using string cheese.

However, you use crushed Doritos instead of breadcrumbs for the breading.

Honestly, I think these are even better. This way, they’re cheesy on the outside and the inside.

(These are a little more calorie-dense than the others, though. So there’s the trade-off.)

3. Chicken & Mozzarella Meatball Sliders

These miniature sandwiches are small but hearty. Enjoy one or two of them, and you’ll be full and satisfied.

The meatballs are juicy and herby. The gooey, cheesy center is what really sets them apart, though.

You bite into the saucy meatball expecting, well, a meatball. 

You get that, of course, but the cheesy filling means you’ll get so much more. These are so good that you could eat them by themselves. 

Not that the sliders aren’t great, they are.

However, the meatballs make excellent appetizers, as well.

4. Prosciutto Mozzarella Sticks

On the keto diet but craving cheese sticks? No problem! Wrap your string cheese in prosciutto instead of breading it. 

They aren’t as crispy on the outside. However, they’re salty, cheesy, and totally scrumptious. You won’t even miss the breading. 

5. Stuffed Crust Pizza

Take your homemade pizza game up a notch by adding stuffed crust. It’s unbelievably simple to make.

All you do is fold some string cheese into the crust.

Then, make your pizza however you usually would. 

6. Skillet Pizza Bombs

Are you a fan of Bagel Bites or Pizza Rolls? If so, skillet pizza bombs are about to become your new favorite thing. 

You’ll stuff each of these miniature bites with all your favorite pizza ingredients.

There’s cheese, peppers, onions, herbs, and pizza sauce. You can even add diced ham or pepperoni if you like.

These make the perfect appetizer, and they’re vegetarian-friendly using this recipe.

7. Italian Pasta Salad

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love cold pasta salad in the summer.

Jazz yours up a little by adding string cheese and tons of fresh veggies. 

Doing so makes it a cool, refreshing, and zesty treat. 

Furthermore, this recipe is great if you need a make-ahead dish. After all, making this the night before only makes it better.

Prepare it the day before an event and leave it to chill in the fridge. 

By the next day, all the various flavors will have had time to sink in. Every bite will be a flavor explosion for your tastebuds.

8. String Cheese Manicotti

Want to make a delectable, decadent meal for the family without all the hard work? This string cheese manicotti is just the thing. 

For this recipe, you swap out string cheese sticks for the traditional ricotta. It makes the process of preparing manicotti so much simpler. 

Plus, if you have kids in the house, they likely prefer mozzarella over ricotta, anyway. 

Oh, and one more thing. With just 10 ingredients, you can have this hearty dinner ready in 40 minutes. That’s hard to beat.

9. Cheese Stuffed Mummy Breadsticks

This isn’t a Halloween-themed recipe list, but you know me. I can never pass up an opportunity to include Halloween foods in something.

These adorable mummies are awesome. They’re garlicky, cheesy, and utterly delicious. Plus, they look like little mummies!

Fortunately, they taste great. And I just love their little olive eyes. Too cute!

10. Pesto Cheese Bombs

These may be the ooeyiest, gooiest, and cheesiest things you’ll ever eat. They’re similar to mozzarella sticks.

However, these have softer exteriors, more like garlic bread than breading.

They’re also insanely flavorful. You make them with pesto, so every bite is a mouthful of zesty, herby goodness.

They’re also buttery and melt-in-your-mouth incredible. Additionally, you make them with premade biscuit dough.

That shortens the cooking time down to just 35 minutes. 

They’re easy, delicious, and sure to be a hit at any gathering. What’s not to love?
