I know the majority of people seeing this will probably be mad because it’s still another 2-3 weeks before you toss your diet, so bookmark this. We’re making homemade Mozza Sticks.
What you’ll need:
1 Block of Mozzarella Cheese
2/3 Cups of Panko Breading
1 Egg (I used just the white, wasn’t thick enough)
1 Jar Marinara Sauce (Whatever your preference. If anyone has a recipe, please share.)
2 Shallow Bowls/Dishes
Preheat oven to 425F and give your cookie sheet a spray.
To make your life easy, do this with a cheese block you can easily cut into sticks. I cut mine about 1/2″ thick and it seemed to work. Set them aside while we get the Panko ready.
Set your element to medium heat and add the Panko once the pan is heated up. Keep an eye on it and stir it regularly. Once the Panko is golden brown, place it in a shallow dish.
Crack the egg, and whip it up in another dish. Take your sliced mozzarella, dip it in the egg and then coat it in the Panko.
Place the breaded sticks on the cookie sheet and put them in the oven for 3 minutes. Watch them and wait. Seriously. I didn’t and almost had a sheet of cheese goo.
Pull those glorious sticks out and let them cool off, at least long enough that they sustain their shape. Heat the marinara sauce up if that’s what you’re into.
Time to chow. These are great for sharing, but I won’t judge if you champ this yourself.
