Baked Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Such was the case when I wondered onto Averie Cooks site.  It was her 2 ingredient, 110 calorie baked mozzarella cheese sticks that grabbed my attention.

2. Place cheese stick on a diagonal of the wrapper and roll up (tightly), folding in the sides as you go. Place the bundle seam side down on baking tray. Lightly spray or brush with olive oil and bake for 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown.
3. Turn cheese sticks over and bake for another 5 minutes or until golden brown.
4. Serve immediately and enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce. I used my own marinara sauce.

The Culinary Chase’s Note:  With 2 ingredients and no cutting involved, these were definitely easy to make. Just make sure the ends of the cheese are covered well or you’ll end up with some of the cheese oozing out…not a bad thing if you ask me. Enjoy!
