Simple Baked Mozzarella Sticks

Who doesn't love mozzarella sticks?  What I don't like is the extra grease and fat.  Here's a simple baked version that tastes just as good as the real thing.  Kids will love them and they are a perfect appetizer for any party :)

  • 1 package mozzarella string cheese
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 egg whites, beaten
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • salt & pepper
  • marinara sauce for dipping
  1.  Place unwrapped mozzarella sticks in the freezer for about 1 hour.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the flour, egg whites and bread crumbs seasoned with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning in a shallow dish.
  3. Dredge the mozzarella into the flour, then the egg whites and finally dredge in the bread crumbs.  Place on  prepared baking sheet.  Repeat for remaining mozzarella sticks.
  4. Bake for about 10 - 15 minutes turning after 5 minutes.  Serve with your favorite marinara or this homemade version :)
