Baked Mozzarella Bites

I don't know about you, but I love Pinterest! There are so many cool finds and tons of recipes. I saw this idea for mozzarella sticks which used string cheese. WW has their own string cheese for 1 point each. I used that along with seasoned whole wheat bread crumbs, and then baked. The key to making sure the cheese doesn't spill out is putting the cut cheese in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Serve with your favorite low-fat marinara sauce for dipping.















Baked Mozzarella Bites
Serves 1

Ingredients:
2 WW Mozzarella String Cheese
1 egg white, beaten
1/4 cup seasoned whole wheat bread crumbs

Directions:
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with olive oil spray. Cut each string cheese into 6 equal pieces. Place on a plate and put in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400°F. Place the beaten egg white in a shallow bowl. Place the bread crumbs on plate. Dip the cheese pieces in the egg white, and then roll in bread crumbs, patting to adhere. Place on prepared baking sheet. Spray the bites with cooking spray.

Bake for about 5 minutes, watching carefully. Remove from oven immediately and enjoy!

(The entire serving is 5 pt. pls)
