It’s kind of been a busy weekend for us in the kitchen. I meant to make these cheese sticks yesterday while Brooklyn had her play date, but time got away from us with the cookie baking. I remembered that we had these to make and decided to make them with dinner. They were a huge hit (eat them as soon as they come out of the oven – better when they’re nice and hot).
We all know that deep frying food is not the best thing for us. A friend of mine told me that she sprays her food with cooking spray and bakes it in the oven. Not it’s new to everyone, but I haven’t done it before! It does give the food you spray that extra crunch to it.
Here’s what you need:
1 pkg cheese sticks (I did use the fat free)
plateful of Italian flavored Panko Bread Crumbs
2 egg whites; mixed well (use the entire egg if you want)
Heat oven to 400 degrees
Cover each cheese stick with egg and roll in the Panko Bread Crumb.
Place each one on a baking sheet (I sprayed with the Olive Oil).
I tried to coat each cheese stick with as much breading as I could. It didn’t want to stick at first. I baked them for 10 minutes or until the cheese started to melt.
We started out with a plateful of them and within minutes we had this:
Happy Sunday. Have a great week this week.
