This Mozzarella Stick Caprese Bites recipe is easy to make starting with frozen mozzarella sticks. It’s SO good and perfect for parties or game day!
I think my husband is the biggest fan of mozzarella sticks on the planet. They are right up at the top of the list of his favorite things to eat and he is always game to eat them.
So, when he saw me return from Walmart with a box of Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks this weekend I am pretty sure I heard him let out an actual “Woo hoo!”
I love mozzarella sticks too and I also love how Farm Rich has so many choices of tasty snacks that we can keep in the freezer and pull out to make a tasty snack or a party appetizer in just a few minutes.
While they are delicious prepared just “as is”, it’s also fun to put our own unique spin on serving them by creating all new recipes.
I put my mind to work to come up with my own snack hack. Since one of my favorite things to eat is caprese salad, I decided to combine my favorite with hubby’s favorite and make this Mozzarella Stick Caprese Bites Recipe.
We also like to call it caprese on a stick!
It’s super quick and easy to make and tastes delicious! These little bites are perfect as a party appetizer, for game day or a tasty lunch.

These look delicious! I love the idea of adding tomato and basil 🙂 I’ve never tried this brand but I am going to look for it the next time I grocery shop!
These look amazing! I think they would be perfect for any get together, and i love how easy they are to make!
Those do look very easy to make, especially since you don’t have to deal with the sticks other than to pop them in the oven. Must try!
