Prep Time: 7 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Serves: Party

Yield: 12 mozzarella “waffle” bites



  • 2 (16-ounce) packages Frigo® Low Moisture Mozzarella Cheese, cut into ½-inch round slices
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 large eggs, beaten

  • 1 cup Italian Style bread crumbs
  • ½ tablespoon Italian seasonings
  • ½ tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ½ tablespoon garlic powder
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Fresh herbs, minced for serving, optional
  • Frigo® Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese for serving, optional

  • Marinara sauce, for serving, optional


Preheat waffle iron.

In a shallow bowl, mix flour with paprika. Whisk eggs together in a second shallow bowl and mix the bread crumbs, Italian seasonings, red pepper flakes, and garlic powder in a third bowl. Working one slice at a time, dust Frigo® Low Moisture Mozzarella Cheese in flour, then thoroughly coat in egg, then cover in breadcrumbs.

Spray both sides of waffle iron with nonstick spray, place two slices of coated cheese in the waffle iron, and close lid. Cook until bread crumbs turn golden brown, about 1 minute. Repeat with remaining cheese.

Serve hot on its own or sprinkle with fresh minced herbs, Frigo® Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese, and marinara for dipping.
