Yes you can have mozzarella sticks on our plan! 

 

Ingredients:

  • Cooking spray
  • 8 toothpicks
  • 4 reduced-fat mozzarella string cheese sticks, halved
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup whole wheat bread crumbs 
  • Tablespoon Italian seasoning

 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to broil setting and spray a small baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Insert toothpick vertically into each cheese stick, half to mid-way point. Beat egg in a small bowl. Place bread crumbs in a separate small bowl and toss with Italian Seasoning.
  3. Dip each cheese stick into egg, then press into bread crumbs. Repeat dipping in egg and breadcrumbs for a double-thick coating. Place cheese sticks on prepared baking sheet and spray with additional cooking spray for uniform browning.
  4. Broil in preheated oven until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Allow cheese sticks to set before serving, about 1 minute.

 

Makes 2-3 Servings. Count each serving as a meal – add a salad to make sure you are full!
