Now that its Super Bowl time I’ve decided to give you a snack recipe – and I know how my dad and his friends love their Super Bowl snacks. So here is a “perfect for Super Bowl” snack recipe – Mozzarella Sticks.
Slice mozzarella cheese into strips. Dip them in two eggs with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes.
Then dip them in 2 cups of Italian style panko bread crumbs mixed with 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese, 1.5 teaspoons garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and two tablespoons of olive oil.
Place the sticks on a baking sheet coated with a little bit of oil. Pop the tray in the oven at 400 degrees for about 7 minutes – but watch them closely! They might turn into one big pile of goop and bread crumbs (and you don’t want that to happen). But you do want them to be gooey enough to stretch when you eat them like they are supposed to.
You can dip them in any sauce of your choice. I suggest 4 cheese marinara sauce.
And one more thing. Does anyone have any tips on how to make the breadcrumbs stick to the cheese better? They were pretty crumbly. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!
