Today’s recipe is very simple and a snap to make. In addition, it is a healthy by version of a comfort food. Plus, it is in honor of a place that will make many of my @sunygeneseo brethren smile – Mr T’s. It was a place on Main street that was known for it’s pizza and the mozzarella sticks were dynamite! It was one of several neat little places on that street that we frequented (perhaps once or twice after a late night visit to GJ’s, the Vital or In Between). Other places included the bronze bear, the donut Shoppe and mama mia’s. I am opting for mozzarella sticks with today’s recipe. They are baked, but very good. So a comfort food, that is healthy, if you will.
- Low fat mozzarella sticks
- 8 tbs Bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- Italian seasoning (optional)
Directions – preheat oven to 350. toast bread crumbs on a light setting in your toaster oven.. Or spray a pan with Pam and, cooking over low heat, toast them, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and add seasoning. Whisk the egg in a separate bowl. Dip mozzarella stick in egg, then the breadcrumbs to cover. Dip stick in egg again and breadcrumbs again. Place sticks on baking sheet and Spray with Pam. Bake 7 to 10 minutes.
Serve with marinara sauce.
