Un-Fried Mozzarella Sticks

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)

 

 

Here’s what you do:

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:

Dipped them in Ranch dressing.  Definitely make these again.

Happy Sunday.  Have a great week this week.
