Recipe: Skinny Baked Mozzarella Sticks


Another good thing I’m looking forward to in the spring/summer is losing weight. During the winter we eat so much and never really get much exercise; I always put on a few pounds every winter.

I’m trying to incorporate a little bit of skinny recipes here in and there into my diet in order to trick myself into shedding a few pounds before winter is finally over.

I baked these skinny mozzarella sticks yesterday and let me tell you, they are one of those kind of recipes that you can’t believe it’s a low-fat recipe. Why? because these mozzarella sticks taste so damn good!

I don’t even know why I would make a full-fat version even if I was not on a diet!


THE RECIPE:

Ingredients:
  • 8 sticks part-skim mozzarella string cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 5 tbsp Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 tsp Parmesan cheese optional
  • olive oil cooking spray

Instructions:
  1. Cut the string cheese in half ( which makes 16 pieces) and place in the freezer for 30-45 minutes. Beat egg in a small and set aside. In a separate bowl mix the Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs and set aside.
  2. Dip 1 string cheese in breadcrumb mixture than in egg mixture and than back in breadcrumb mixture. Repeat this for all the pieces. Place sticks on a greased foil or pan. Return the cheese stick back to the freezer for at LEAST 30-45 minutes ( Do not skip this step because the cheese will melt if they are not frozen).
  3. After the cheese is finished freezing heat oven t0 375 degrees. Spray the cheese lightly with cooking spray and place in the oven. After 4 minutes flip the cheese sticks and continue baking for another 3- minutes or until they are golden. Do not overbake because the cheese will melt. Serve Hot with your favorite marinara sauce. Enjoy!
