Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

5 Min

Ingredients

12
mozzarella sticks
1
egg
2 Tbsp
flour
5 Tbsp
bread crumbs
2 Tbsp
parmesan cheese
a dollop of olive oil, or cooking spray

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut the cheese sticks in half, making 24 slices, then put the slices in the freezer until completely frozen
2
Beat the egg in a small bowl. Use a separate bowl to combine the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese
3
To bread the cheese sticks: First dip the frozen cheese stick into the flour, then into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture
4
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!)
5
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!
