Homemade Baked Mozzarella Sticks

Sometimes I surprise myself. I knew that these mozzarella sticks would probably be delicious but I had no idea they would be AMAZING. My mom said it was the best thing I had ever made...EVER. I honestly thought they were way better than any mozzarella sticks I've had at a restaurant. These mozarella sticks aren't even fried!! AKA you can eat twice as much.... Ok maybe not, but I still did haha.

  • 12 sticks mozzarella cheese sticks
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 10 tbsp Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 10 tbsp panko crumbs
  • 4 tsp parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp dried parsley
  • non stick cooking spray
  • tomato sauce
  • Cut all cheese sticks in half to make 24 pieces.
  • Place cheese in freezer. 
  • Place the beaten egg in one bowl, and the flour in a second bowl.
  • Combine italian breadcrumbs, panko crumbs, parmesan cheese, and dried parsley in a third bowl.
  • To make mozarella sticks, place each frozen cheese stick first in flour bowl, then in egg bowl, then in bread crumbs bowl. Repeat this process with all the cheese sticks. Once the cheese sticks are coated, place on a baking sheet with wax paper.
  • Note: You will have extra breadcrumbs, flour, and egg mixture left over. 
  • Place mozzarella sticks in freezer for about 20 minutes, or until frozen. 
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spray a baking sheet with non stick cooking spray. Place frozen mozarella sticks on tray. Spray tops of mozarella sticks with cooking spray.
  • Bake for about 4 to 5 minutes. Flip mozzarella sticks and bake for an additional 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Serve with your favorite tomato sauce.
