So I tried this recipe from Recipe Diaries, which she got from Taste of Home, and it didn’t quite turn out how I thought it would. When I think of mozzarella sticks, I think of ooey gooey cheese that strings on for days. My cheese didn’t exactly melt in the middle of these sticks. I used string cheese, as the recipe calls for, but I think it would work a lot better if I used sticks of real block cheese. The sticks tasted good, they just didn’t mimic the original deep fried version I was craving.
Jason really liked them so I think I’ll try it again using some of the incredible Mississippi State Cheese we got for Christmas.
If you make them, let me know how you liked them/modified them… I really want this healthier version to work!
