Homemade Mozza Sticks!!!
What you need
12 sticks of string cheese in your choice of cheese, go for the low sodium kind if you want to be extra healthy
2 tbsp of flour
5 tbsp of bread crumbs
2 tbsp of parmesan cheese
A dollop of olive oil, or cooking spray
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!
Want to have some glow in the dark fun? This will add a little flair to your kids parties...If they are up that late...
