I am a sucker for mozzarella cheese sticks. Absolutely love them. And before Weight Watchers, I would order them whenever I saw them on a menu. Now that fast food restaurants have them on the menus too, that is dangerous. Now I can have some as a treat and not cheat! The picture is not pretty, but don’t let that fool you. These were delicious.
Oven-Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
Olive oil spray
Italian bread crumbs
Panko bread crumbs
Egg whites, beaten
Dip cheese into egg whites and coat generously. Then dip sticks into bread crumbs, back into egg whites and then coat in bread crumbs again. Spray 3 times with olive oil spray. Cook at 400 degrees for 5 – 7 mins.
Note: I experimented with mine and tried them with Italian bread crumbs, with Panko bread crumbs, and finally with Italian and Panko bread crumbs combined. I don’t have a preference as they were all good although the Panko held the cheese in the best. But then I like mine oozing out too.
