Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

Who knew you could make something so delicious, right in your kitchen?? These mozzarella sticks, which taste very similar to Arby's by the way, were a fun treat for us the other night. I'm always looking for ways to make fast food recipe items healthier and these definitely did the trick! They would also be a fun hands-on recipe for the little ones in your house.

INGREDIENTS


  • 6 mozzarella string cheese reduced-fat
  • 1/3 cup panko
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Marinara sauce

DIRECTIONS


  1. Unwrap each string cheese and cut in half.
  2. In two small bowls, mix the panko and bread crumbs in one and the flour in the other.
  3. In another small bowl whisk the egg and milk together. 
  4. Dip the string cheese first in the flour, then in the egg mixture, followed by the bread crumbs. 
  5. Put cheese in the freezer for 30 minutes. (This step is essential. If skipped, the cheese will just make a melted mess!)
  6. Preheat your oven to 350ยบ. Pull your mozzarella sticks out and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 7-8 minutes. 
  7. Serve with marinara sauce.
