Baked Mexican Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
These looked SO good to me and I'm always up for trying new appetizers I thought I'll make this for a munchie while we play games tomorrow night.
That is if anyone can fit anything in their stomachs after this huge Thanksgiving spread I'm making!
I don't remember originally where I saw these but you can find it here at Gimmie Some Oven, what a cute name & they take excellent photos too!
This is what you will need:
12 sticks of Mozzarella string cheese
1 egg beaten
1/4 cup of flour
5 Tbsp of Italian breadcrumbs
1/2 cup of Panko bread crumbs
2 Tsp of chili powder
1 Tsp of garlic salt
1/4 Tsp of oregano
How to make them:
Unwrap the cheese sticks.
Cut them in half.
Place on a plate in freezer for one hour.
Preheat your over to 400 degrees.
Take a baking sheet line with tin foil and spray with the cooking spray.
In a bowl fill it with the flour.
The next bowl beat the egg in
Your third bowl fill with the Panko, chill powder, cumin, garlic salt and oregano and mix.
Now remove the cheese sticks from the freezer.
Like an assembly line, dip the cheese stick into the flour bowl, then the egg bowl finally the Panko mixture.
Place each finished stick onto the baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes
Severe with salsa or marinara sauce.
