Skinny Baked Mozzarella Sticks





Skinny Baked Mozzarella Sticks - adapted from Skinny Taste

12 sticks part-skim, reduced sodium mozzarella string cheese (Sargento)
1 large egg, beaten
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/4 tsp Cajun seasoning
1 tbsp dried parsley
cooking spray


Cut cheese in half to give you 24 pieces. Place cheese in the freezer until cheese is frozen.  In small bowl, whisk the egg. Place the flour on another small dish. In separate bowl, combine bread crumbs, panko, Cajun seasoning, and dried parsley.


Dip the frozen sticks in flour, shaking off excess, then into the egg, then coat with the crumbs.  Repeat this process with the remaining cheese placing them on a tray with wax paper. Place cheese back into the freezer until ready to bake (this is a must or they will melt before the crumbs get golden).

When ready to bake preheat oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray with cooking spray.


Place frozen cheese sticks on baking sheet. Spray the tops of the mozzarella sticks with a little more cooking spray and bake in the bottom third of your oven until crisp, about 3 to 4 minutes. Turn and bake an additional 3 - 4 minutes watching them closely so they don't melt.

Makes 24 pieces.
