Baked Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Yum
One of my family's favorite appetizers!
Baked not Fried!
3 ingredients and 5 minutes baking time!

You will need to Pin this one for sure!

A long time ago, my sister introduced me to this concept of baking not frying mozzarella cheese sticks.  I totally forgot about it until I happened across it on pinterest.  I knew I had to bring this one back to life!
Seriously...3 ingredients and 5 minutes cooking time!  Could that be any easier?

Ingredients:
1 16 oz block of mozzarella cheese
2 eggs
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
Directions:
In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs.  Pour the Italian bread crumbs into another bowl.  Slice the mozzarella cheese into approximately 18 sticks.  Dip each cheese stick into egg and then coat with Italian bread crumbs.  Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray. Place the coated cheese stick on the tray.  Bake at 350 degrees for 3 minutes, then flip and cook an additional 2 minutes.  Watch carefully!  Remove from baking sheet and serve with marinara sauce.


Each baked mozzarella cheese stick is soft and gooey.  You'll just love dunking it in marinara sauce!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet,
