It’s full on football season, and being from Texas and having a husband also from the south who played college ball, watching football is part of our weekend routine. Because our game watching get-togethers usually end up in a table full of fried food (wings, french fries, chips), this week I tried making baked cheese sticks using low-fat mozzarella for a lighter twist on the classic. They are just as cheesy and crunchy as their fried counterparts but with less guilt, which means you can eat more of them right…
Low-fat Mozzarella String Cheese
1/2 C Flour
1 Tbl Butter
1 C Bread Crumbs (Italian Style)
2 Eggs (lightly beaten)
1. Cut cheese sticks in half and place in freezer for at least half an hour.
2. Coat with flour.
3. Dip in eggs.
4. Melt butter and cut into breadcrumbs. Roll cheese in mixture. Repeat steps 2-4.
Sprinkle lightly with salt. Bake at 400 for 5 min. Gently flip cheese sticks over then bake 5 more min.
Pair with marinara sauce for dipping. Go Cowboys!
