Ingredients

cooking spray

½ cup whole wheat bread crumbs

¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon dried rosemary

2 large eggs

2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour

12 part-skim mozzarella sticks, cut in half crosswise

Instructions
Freeze cheese sticks for 1-2 hours after cutting, prevents from melting while cooking.
Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray it with olive oil cooking spray.
Mix the bread crumbs with the cheese, garlic powder and rosemary in a bowl.
In a shallow bowl, whisk the eggs with 1 tablespoon water. Place the flour in another shallow bowl, and the breadcrumbs mixture in a third bowl.

Dip each cheese stick in flour, shake off the excess, then dip in eggs, again shaking off the excess, and finally dredge in the breadcrumbs mixture, gently pressing to coat. Use one hand for dipping in the egg mixture and one for the dry plates, to avoid a sticky mess.

Place the coated cheese sticks on the prepared baking sheet.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray them with olive oil spray. Bake 5 minutes, turn, spray with more olive oil spray and bake 5 more minutes, until golden and crisp. Serve immediately.
