Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

Recipe and photo from http://everycollegegirl.com/how-to-cook-healthy-mozzarella-sticks/

  • 12 sticks of string cheese in your choice of cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp of flour
  • 5 tbsp of bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp of parmesan cheese
  • A dollop of olive oil, or use cooking spray

Preparation

  • Cut the cheese sticks in half, making 24 slices, then freeze the slices in the freezer until completely frozen
  • Beat the egg in a small bowl. Use a separate bowl to combine the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese
  • To bread the cheese sticks: First dip the frozen cheese stick into the flour, then into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture
  • Once all of the 24 sticks are coated, place them on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil coated with a few drops of olive oil or sprayed with cooking spray (this will keep cleanup to a minimum, and keep the sticks from sticking!)
  • Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 4 minutes, or until crisp. They need to be watched closely so they don’t melt completely!
 Serve with marinara sauce.
