Cheese Sticks

Cheese Sticks

12 sticks of string cheese in your choice of cheese, go for the low sodium kind if you want to be extra healthy

1 egg
... 1/2 cup finely ground pork rinds
2 tbsp of parmesian cheese
A dollop of olive oil, or cooking spray

Preparation:

Cut the cheese sticks in half, making 24 slices, then freeze the slices in the freezer until completely frozen

Beat the egg in a small bowl. Use a separate bowl to combine the bread crumbs and parmesian cheese

To bread the cheese sticks: First dip the frozen cheese stick into the flour, then into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture.

Once all of the 24 sticks are coated, place them on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil coated with a few drops of olive oil, (this will keep cleanup to a minimum, and keep the sticks from sticking!)

Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 4 minutes, or until crisp. They need to be watched closely so they don’t melt completely!
