Baked Mozzarella Sticks

Valerie Esque


My kids love mozzarella sticks. This recipe is healthier because you bake them instead of deep frying in oil. I get my kids to help dip them.

20 Min


10 Min


3 pkg
mozzarella cheese sticks (not breaded) found in the dairy section of the store
4 Tbsp
2 c
all purpose flour
1 (15 oz.) can(s)
italian bread crumbs
1 stick
butter, melted

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Open packages of mozzarella sticks. In one shallow bowl, break eggs and add water; blend with a fork. In another shallow bowl, pour in flour. In a third shallow bowl, pour in bread crumbs.
For each cheese stick, follow the same procedure. Dip the cheese stick in flour, then in the egg mixture, then in the bread crumbs, back in the egg mixture again then finally in the bread crumbs again.
Place on an ungreased baking sheet. When all the cheese sticks have been dipped and placed on baking sheets, drizzle with the melted butter over each. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
You may add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper to your bread crumbs if you like a spicier cheese stick.
