  • 5 Farm Rich Breaded Mozzarella Sticks baked or fried according to package directions
  • 10 slices of cucumber only 1 cucumber is needed
  • 10 slices of roma tomato about 2 tomatoes
  • 10 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup balsamic glaze purchase it already made, or reduce balsamic to make your own


  • Bake or fry mozzarella sticks according to package directions. I fried mine and it takes about 2 minutes and 15 seconds.
  • Wash and slice your cucumber and tomatoes
  • Assemble by placing a cucumber down first, putting a tomato slice on top, followed by a fresh basil leaf.
  • Cut your mozzarella sticks in half, and place half on each caprese bite.
  • Skewer with toothpicks, and drizzle balsamic glaze or reduction on top.*
  • Serve immediately


* I buy my balsamic as a glaze, which means it is already reduced, and you can just drizzle it over the top. However, to reduce it yourself, simply bring about a cup of balsamic to a boil, and turn it down slightly, then let it simmer and reduce until it is about 1/3 the amount.
