Full of melty cheese and packed with flavor, these baked mozzarella cheese sticks are less greasy than the fried version, but still satisfy your cravings.
Ingredients
  • 12 mozzarella cheese sticks
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup Italian flavored breadcrumbs
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Dash of pepper
  • Marinara sauce for dipping, if desired
Instructions
  1. Cut cheese sticks in half. Set aside. Line a large baking pan with parchment paper or silpat baking mat. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the flour.
  3. In a small bowl, lightly whisk the eggs.
  4. In another medium bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, garlic powder, and pepper. Lightly stir.
  5. Dredge each cheese stick in the flour mixture, then dunk into egg mixture, and finally coat all sides with breadcrumb mixture. Repeat with each cheese stick.
  6. Place onto lined baking tray and freeze for 30 minutes to 1 hour (to ensure that cheese doesn't melt too much when baking).
  7. Preheat oven to 400F.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden on outside.
  9. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping, if desired.
