How To Make baked homemade mozzarella sticks

  • 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!)

    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!
