Yummy! We put our cheese sticks in the freezer until solid before dipping and baking, they didn't melt at all!
These were okay. They didn't crisp up like fried sticks and the cheese started melting out. I won't make them again, as I think these really need to be fried for the breading to cook properly.
Lovely!! Very much like regular mozzarella sticks--will definitely make again :)
Loved 'em! I attempted these for the 1st time and found that if I 'smoosh' the bread crumb mixture on the cheese sticks, it stays a lot better and creates more of the traditional style. Great for kids!! They will have fun with all the smooshing :)
These were great!!! I never thought about baking the sticks.
Sadly, I agree with "mmyers168". They didn't crisp and the cheese did ooze out. Some things have to be fried, I guess. This is one of them. Just go for the caloric mozzarella stick and save your calories elsewhere. Will not make again and threw away recipe.
Loved it...but due to people saying they got runny I reduced the heat to 300 and also added some garlic powder for extra flavoring...it was perfect! Will make again! Also used wax paper on the pan and cut the sticks in half if that makes a difference...very good :) family approved!
