Baked Mozzarella Sticks

This recipe comes from another lady in my support group, Linda. I made this once when we had company. They were really good. I’m pretty sure I used the Terra Red Bliss potato chips, and didn’t add the Italian seasoning (because the chips are already seasoned). If you need a quick, easy appetizer, this is it. Be forewarned, a single teenager (or hubby) can devour an entire recipe.

Baked Mozzarella Sticks
6 Pack of individually wrapped Mozzarella cheese sticks
1 medium egg, beaten
1 bag GF Potato Chips
1 Tbsp. GF Italian Seasoning (McCormick brand)
1 Tbsp. corn starch
Preheat oven to 400. Crush potato chips to a very fine consistency (can use a blender). Add Italian seasoning & cornstarch. Put dry mixture in a separate flat pan. One at a time, coat cheese stick with egg & put in dry mixture. You can dip and coat once or twice depending on your preference.
Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Put cheese sticks at least 1″ apart and bake for 8-10 minutes. Serve plain or with your favorite GF marinara sauce or Ranch Dressing. Serves 6. If fixing for a group just double to the quantity needed.

    Oh this recipe brings back memories.When my brother was a kid he would only eat cheesesticks when we went to a restaurant. I haven’t had cheeseticks in ages. I really like the idea of using the crumbled chips; I can just imagine what a great crunch that has.

    These were so yummy! I cut the cheese sticks in half to make them bite-size. However, I didn’t crush the potato chips very fine and I didn’t get enough coverage. I had little “cheese puddles” but they were still sooo good! I’ll get it right next time and they will be even better!
