Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

Ingredients

12 sticks of string cheese in your choice of cheese, you can also use low sodium

1 large egg

2 Tbsp flour

5 Tbsp bread crumbs

2 Tbsp parmesan cheese

a dollop of olive oil or cooking spray

Directions

Cut the cheese sticks in half, making 24 slices, then freeze the slices in the freezer until completely frozen. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Beat the egg in a small bowl. Use a separate bowl to combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese

To bread cheese sticks, dip the frozen cheese sticks into the flour, then into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture.

Once all 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 clean up easy and keep the sticks from sticking to the pan)

Bake in the oven for about 4 minutes or until crisp. They need to be watched closely so they don’t melt completely! Dip in some warm marinara or just enjoy plain!
