How to Make Baked Mozzarella Sticks


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and position rack in upper third of oven. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.

    Remove cheese from packaging and set aside.
  • 2In a small bowl, whisk egg until foamy.

    In a small non-stick skillet, mix Italian seasoning with bread crumbs and place over medium-heat. Cook and stir bread crumbs until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  • 3Dip one piece of string cheese in egg until coated and then into toasted bread crumbs, coating completely. Redip the string cheese in egg and again in bread crumbs, if desired. Place on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining string cheese and place on baking sheet 1 1/2- inches apart. Spray string cheese lightly wth cooking spray.
  • 4Bake 5 to 6 minutes or until heated through.

    Cheese may melt slightly and loose shape; simply press back into place. Serve with warmed marinara sauce for dipping.
