Anybody wondering what this is?
They aren't the prettiest things in the world, but they tasted good!
My kids love mozzarella sticks. You know the ones, deep fried pieces of cheese that are frequent appetizers. However, I don't make them at home b/c I pretty much never fry food. I don't buy them b/c they are so unhealthy. So, my kids are pretty much out of luck.
I've tried some other methods of preparation, trying to find a suitable replacement for the kiddoes. We've wrapped crescent rolls around string cheese (my kids love some crescent rolls) and baked them. The kids liked those, but they're still high in fat.
So, the other night I was looking around the fridge and saw some leftover egg roll wrappers. And string cheese.
And the baked cheese stick was born!
All you do is wrap a mozzarella cheese stick in an egg roll wrapper, place them on a baking pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, and bake them in the oven until they start to brown and the cheese is all melty and oozy. oozy's a word right? Maybe.
Anyway, I baked them at 375 (I think?!) for abt 10 minutes per side.
My girls loved these! (Mr. Two couldn't have them b/c of the eggroll wrapper). They were tasty, and a great alternative to fried! (eggroll wrappers are very low in fat, and you could use light string cheese as well). These could also be fried, and would probably be delicious, but that's not what I was looking for.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. If you happen to have a cure for a NONSTOP cough, I'd love to hear it. I've really had enough. My poor bladder can't handle all this coughing after going through three pregnancies. I know, TMI.
