Ingredients: 

 

12 sticks part-skim, reduced sodium mozzarella string cheese (Sargento)

1 large egg, beaten

2 tbsp flour

5 tbsp Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

5 tbsp panko crumbs

2 tsp parmesan cheese

1 tbsp dried parsley

olive oil cooking spray (I used my misto)

 

Directions:

 

  • Cut cheese in half to give you 24 pieces. Place cheese in the freezer until cheese is frozen.
  • Dip the frozen sticks in flour, shaking off excess, then into the egg, then coat with the crumbs.
  • Repeat this process with the remaining cheese placing them on a tray with wax paper. Place cheese back into the freezer until ready to bake (this is a must or they will melt before the crumbs get golden).
  • When ready to bake preheat oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray with oil.
  • Place frozen cheese sticks on baking sheet. Spray the tops of the mozzarella sticks with a little more oil and bake in the bottom third of your oven until crisp, about 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and bake an additional 4 – 5 minutes watching them closely so they don’t melt.

 

Makes 24 pieces.
