day 10: mozzarella sticks from my "recipes i need to try" board

homemade baked mozzarella sticks

mike and i had homemade (well, not by me) cavatelli last night, so i thought these would be a quick and easy side dish/ appetizer.

just an fyi: i cut the recipe in half for us, but i'll still include the full recipe.

12 mozzarella string cheese sticks (cut in half and frozen)
1 large egg, beaten
2 tablespoons flour
5 tablespoons italian seasoned bread crumbs
5 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon dried parsley
olive oil cooking spray

- preheat the oven to 400 degrees
- put the flour in one bowl, the beaten egg in a second bowl, and the panko, italian seasoned, parmesan, and parsley in a third bowl
- dip the frozen cheese sticks in flour, then the egg, then the bread crumb mixture
- place them on a cooking sheet covered with aluminum foil and coated with the olive oil cooking spray (i took some regular olive oil, poured it on the foil, and used a paper towel to coat the tray)
- put the cooking sheet with all the mozz sticks back in the freezer to refreeze
- place in the oven for 4-5 minutes on one side, flip, and cook for an additional 4-5 minutes on the other side

yummm! homemade cavatelli pasta
everything ready to go


they were amazing, if i do say so myself!
