Mozzarella Munchers Attack!

Standard

I LOVE mozzarella sticks!

If I see them on the menu, I will want to order them.

unfortunately, they are not what you’d label as a healthy snack.

The ooey cheese and fried outer core is hard to resist.

Now I don’t have to!

Thanks to this recipe for HEALTHY MOZZARELLA BITES.

Yes.  I said healthy.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Heat a medium skillet over medium heat.  Add 1/3 cup of panko bread crumbs to the pan and cook for 2 minutes or until toasted, stirring frequently.  Remove from heat, and place the panko in a shallow dish.Cut mozzarella sticks into 1-inch pieces.  Working with one piece at a time, dip cheese in egg substitute; dredge in panko.  Place cheese on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.  Bake at 425 degrees for 3 minutes or until cheese is softened and thoroughly heated.  Pour the marina sauce into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on HIGH one minute or until thoroughly heated, stirring after 30 seconds.

These are so easy to make and taste like any other mozzarella bite.
I couldn’t believe how healthy they were.  They don’t taste it!
Now we can give into our greasy, cheesy, fried cravings and not feel disgusting afterward!
Enjoy!
