BAKED MOZZARELLA STICKS

Ingredients:
12 sticks of mozzarella (Sargento low sodium is suggested for less salt and it has best flavor)
1 Large Egg, beaten
2 Tbsp Flour
5 Tbsp Panko
5 Tbsp Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs
2 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese
1 Tbsp died Parsley
Olive Oil Cooking Spray

Directions:

Cut the cheese sticks in half, making 24 slices, then put the slices in the freezer until completely frozen. Beat the egg in a small bowl. Use a separate bowl to combine the bread crumbs, panko, dried parsley, and parmesan cheese . To bread the cheese sticks: First dip the frozen cheese stick into the flour(shake off excess), then into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture. You can place on wax paper tray and place in freezer if not ready to cook them yet. Once all of the 24 sticks are coated, place them on a baking sheet that is covered with aluminum foil. Spray the foil with Olive Oil cooking spray. (this will keep cleanup to a minimum, and keep the sticks from sticking!) After sticks are on baking dish, lightly coat them with spray as well. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 4 minutes on one side, then 4 minutes on the other. They need to be watched closely so they don’t melt completely! *Serve hot right out of oven because like any cheese as they cool, they will harden .
