Baked panko crusted mozzarella sticks
Start by shaking prepackaged cheese sticks in a bag of flour until evenly coated. Then you’ll dredge your cheese in egg whites and a final dive into the panko or bread crumb mixture and the cheese sticks are covered and ready for the oven. If you spray them with a little bit of cooking spray, they will brown up nicer in the oven. Bake at 400 degrees for about 8-10 minutes and you’re ready to snack!
