So I’m in this mode of trying to get the health book done by the end of June and then I’ll be able to get it published. This is another recipe from the book. Actually, this is the gluten free option of the recipe. The original recipe calls for panko bread crumbs and the gluten free option uses bread crumbs made from gluten free bread. My kids loved this recipe. Hope you do to.
Oven Fried Cheese Sticks
8 Light String Cheese Sticks, cut in half
2 Tablespoon Rice Flour
6 Slices White Gluten Free Bread, cut into chunks
½ Cup Egg Substitute
3 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
Partially freeze mozzarella sticks, for about 15-20 minutes in the freezer. Preheat the oven to 400º. To make the gluten free bread crumbs, put the gluten free bread into a food processor and process until crumbs. Place on a baking sheet and bake in oven until slightly brown and dried, about 5 minutes, and let cool. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the flour into a small plate and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Roll each cheese stick in the flour. Place breadcrumbs and Italian seasoning into a zipper top bag. Pour the egg substitute into a shallow dish. Dip each cheese stick in the egg substitute and then transfer to the breadcrumbs and shake to coat. Coat all the cheese sticks this way. Dip coated cheese stick a second time in the egg and coat again with the bread crumbs. Spritz each cheese stick with cooking spray. Bake in preheated oven 5-6 minutes, until cheese is bubbly. Serve with your favorite marinara sauce. Makes 8, 2 stick, servings.
