mozzarella sticks
2 Tbsp
5 Tbsp
bread crumbs
2 Tbsp
parmesan cheese
a dollop of olive oil, or cooking spray

Directions Step-By-Step

Cut the cheese sticks in half, making 24 slices, then put the slices in the freezer until completely frozen
Beat the egg in a small bowl. Use a separate bowl to combine the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese
To bread the cheese sticks: First dip the frozen cheese stick into the flour, then into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture
Once all of the 24 sticks are coated, place them on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil coated with a few drops of olive oil or sprayed with cooking spray (this will keep cleanup to a minimum, and keep the sticks from sticking!)
Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 4 minutes, or until crisp. They need to be watched closely so they don’t melt completely!

Do you think these could all be coated ahead of time and kept frozen until ready to bake?

I just made these. I "double dip" the egg + bread crumb/parmesan mixture. The first two I did, I followed the instructions, but found I wanted a lot more coating on them. Also, I had to use about 3 times the amount of flour listed (even though I only dipped them once in flour), I used 3 eggs, and I had to use about 5 times the amount of bread crumbs+parmesan cheese. But, I assume everyone can figure out how much they actually need of each, when making their own.

Delicious, and easy! Thanks.

I tried this but my cheese was not sticking to the batter. Anybody know why.

Angel, I'm not sure - but you may have done the coating in the wrong order. You have to make sure and do flour first, then egg, then mixture. Good luck.

Great cheese sticks. I didn't measure anything. I did double coat them however. And yes you CAN freeze them.

I did this and they just melted. I watched them for 4 minutes and the outer area didn't cook. I did many many coats to be sure of that and it still didn't work. what did I do wrong?
