  • 8 sticks part-skim mozzarella string cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 5 tbsp Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 tsp Parmesan cheese optional

Instructions

  • Cut the string cheese in half ( which makes 16 pieces) and place in the freezer for 30-45 minutes. Beat egg in a small and set aside. In a separate bowl mix the Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs and set aside.

  • Dip 1 string cheese in breadcrumb mixture than in egg mixture and than back in breadcrumb mixture. Repeat this for all the pieces. Place sticks on a greased foil or pan. Return the cheese stick back to the freezer for at LEAST 30-45 minutes ( Do not skip this step because the cheese will melt if they are not frozen).

  • After the cheese is finished freezing heat oven t0 375 degrees. Spray the cheese lightly with cooking spray and place in the oven. After 4 minutes flip the cheese sticks and continue baking for another 3- minutes or until they are golden. Do not overbake because the cheese will melt. Serve Hot with your favorite marinara sauce. Enjoy!
