Directions

Step 1: Place flour on plate

Step 2: Put Egg in a Bowl

Step 3: In another bowl mix the remaining ingredients: breadcrumbs, parsley, garlic powder, oregano, parmesan cheese and salt/black pepper to taste.

Take 6 sticks and cut mozzarella sticks in half.   Slightly coat each stick by rolling in the flour mixture.  Next, dip stick in egg and then coat thoroughly in the bowl with the seasoning mixture.

Place on coated pan (I use my silpat).  Spray a little coconut oil (or cooking spray) on the mozzarella sticks and bake at 400˚ F for 3 minutes.  Turn sticks over and cook another 3 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is soft.

Prepare for Later: You can freeze sticks in wax paper if you want to save for future use. I usually cook those 2-3 minutes longer since they are frozen.
