DIY: Baked Mozzarella Sticks

Hello dears!

It has been some time, thank you for the kind emails and comments of well wishes after the accident! Very blessed by all of you!

Business started booming last week on my Etsy shop! And on top of that, a lot of things are happening in my personal life! We have a baby shower coming up for my cousin next weekend and I can’t wait to share with you all that we’ve done behind the scene for it! Look out for a full post on that next week!

I know I’m not the first person who thought this was a brilliant idea, but as I couldn’t find the webpage where I saw it originally, I thought I’d give it a whirl and see if I could recreate it with just my own thought and creativity. So I share with you my trials and errors of making your own Baked mozzarella Sticks. (Clarification: this is not an original idea by me, simply sharing how I did with following what I remembered in my head and how it worked or didn’t… think of this as a sort of pin-buster).

The original post got fumbled! 😦 But anyone who knows me knows how much I love mozzarella sticks and cheese! It was hard to give up with my new eating habits, but I found a way online to eat them in a healthier fashion… baked!

All you need is some egg roll wrappers (room temperature), low-fat part-skim mozzarella sticks!

I started at one end of the wrapper and rolled the cheese stick as it was a sub I was wrapping up!

I dabbed my fingers in water and rubbed it on the edge to make sure the wrapper sealed!

Ready for baking! The first round I sprayed with olive oil and sprinkled ground pepper and sea salt on top!

Whomp, whomp. They were still delicious, but they oozed out of the end!

Also, I need to mention that I think it has something to do with watching “Thor”… because each time I watch that movie I’ve made these…

This time, I cut the cheese sticks in half! It worked PERFECTLY! I doubled the right three because I didn’t have enough wrappers, oops!

I stuck these in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, flipping them over after 5 to make sure each size was cooked fully.

How good do these look!? I must confess I ate most of them. The trick I found was the cutting in half! That made sure they didn’t ooze out of the sides! I added some pizza sauce for the size to dip them in. I love these and definitely recommend to anyone who has a strong fondness for mozzarella sticks! It’s only the two ingredients, the second round I didn’t do any additional oils or salt/pepper. They were super tasty!

Have you made these!? What did you think?
