Baked Mozzrella Sticks

Part-skim mozzarella sticks coated with crispy seasoned breadcrumbs and baked until hot and golden. Serve them with marinara sauce  and you have yourself an appetizer everyone will love.

Hot mozzarella sticks, I can't think of a more popular finger food with both kids and adults alike! I mean, what's not to like? Baking them as opposed to frying and using part skim cheese doesn't effect how good these are. 

Of course, you'll want to serve them hot right out of the oven, because like any cheese, as they cool they harden.


        12 sticks part-skim, reduced sodium mozzarella string cheese (Sargento)

  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup  panko crumbs
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • olive oil cooking spray

Cut cheese stick in half so you have 24 pieces. Place cheese in freezer until its frozen.
In small bowl, whisk the egg. Place the flour on another small dish. In separate bowl,combine bread crumbs, panko, parmesan cheese 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 oil.
Place frozen cheese sticks on baking sheet. Spray the tops of the mozzarella sticks with a little more oil and bake in the bottom third of your oven until crisp, about 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and bake an additional 4 - 5 minutes watching them closely so they don't melt.
served with warm marinara sauce.
