TGI Friday’s Mozzarella Sticks Made Skinny

  • 15mins
  • Serves 24
  • Medium



12 light string cheese sticks

1 large egg, I like Egg-Land’s Best

2 tablespoons flour

⅔ cup panko crumbs, see shopping tips

¾ teaspoon garlic powder

¼ teaspoon salt

Fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Cooking spray, I like olive oil cooking spray

¾ cup pizza sauce or marinara sauce, I used Classico Pizza Sauce, see shopping tips

1. Cut each cheese stick in half to create 24 pieces. Place cheese pieces on a plate and freeze for at least 1 hour until frozen. These can be stored for several days in the freezer until ready to use. Wrap them in plastic wrap, once frozen.

2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray. Set aside.

3. In small bowl, beat the egg. Place flour in another small bowl. In a third small bowl, add panko bread crumbs, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix well.

4. To assemble mozzarella sticks: Dip frozen sticks in flour, shaking off excess, then into egg, then finally coat with panko crumbs. Repeat steps to coat all of them.

5. Place all coated sticks on baking sheet. Spray the tops with cooking spray.

6. Bake for 5 minutes, turn over and spray with a little more cooking spray. Bake an additional 4-5 minutes until heated but NOT melted. In fact, be sure to keep an eye on them so they don’t melt!

7. Remove from oven and place on a plate. Serve with pizza sauce on the side. Refrigerate any leftovers. They will keep for several days. To reheat, either zap in microwave for a few seconds or place on a baking sheet and heat in a 400 degree oven until warm but not melted.

Makes 24 pieces (each serving 2 pieces and 1 tablespoon sauce) These 2 pieces are equal to 1 string cheese stick!
