Preparing the Mozzarella Sticks

  • In a medium sized bowl mix together the heavy cream and eggs. Set aside.
  • Using a blender, grind the pork rinds into a fine powder. Then mix the crushed pork rinds and spices together in a shallow bowl. Set aside.
  • Add your coconut flour to another medium sized bowl.
  • Dip the frozen cheese sticks into the egg mixture, shaking off any excess. Immediately dip and batter with coconut flour.
  • Then dip into the egg mixture again before finally dipping into the pork rind mixture to form a thick coating around the cheese stick.


  • Heat the oven to 400F
  • Place the breaded cheese sticks on a greased baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Then broil on low for a final 1-3 minutes.


  • Heat your shallow layer of oil until it is hot enough to sizzle a mozzarella stick when dipped, but not hot enough to create smoke.
  • Once oil is hot, place in your mozzarella sticks and fry for 30 seconds a side, about 2-3 minutes total. They should be a dark golden brown, but not burnt.
  • Serve and enjoy. Recipe can be stored in fridge for 5 days. Reheat in the oven for 5 minutes at 400 degrees
