Healthy Snacks For Kids – Baked Mozzarella Sticks Recipe

Do buy cheese sticks for your kids lunches?  Has the thrill of having cheese sticks in their lunches worn off?  Well here is a cool recipe for an after school snack {or movie night at your house}, that’s not only easy to make, but super nutritious as well.


8 cheese sticks, cut in half
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, shredded
Marinara sauce for dipping


Unwrap cheese sticks, cut in half and place on a lined cookie sheet.  Place cheese sticks on lined cookie sheet and freeze.  Once the cheese sticks are frozen, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Grab 3 cereal bowls.

In bowl #1 crack egg, discard shells, whisk egg and set aside.

In bowl #2 place 2 tablespoons flour in bowl and set aside.

In bowl #3 mix together Panko bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and set aside.

One at a time, roll cheese sticks in flour, than egg mixture and finally Panko mixture.  Placed coated mozzarella sticks on a lined cookie sheet or silpat and baked at 400 degrees for 5 minutes on each side.

Special Note – Cheese sticks MUST BE FROZEN for this to work.  If your cheese is not frozen, it will just melt into a gooey mess in your oven.
