Baked Mozzarella Bites


2 ½ tablespoons cornstarch

1 ½ cups panko breadcrumbs

2 large egg whites

2 tablespoons water

¼ teaspoon black pepper

6 (1oz.) sticks mozzarella string cheese


Preheat oven to 425°F.  Line baking sheet with foil and coat it with cooking spray.  Remove each string cheese from its plastic wrap.  Cut each one into 4 pieces and set aside  Place cornstarch and breadcrumbs into two separate large zip-top bags.  In a shallow dish, whisk egg whites, water, and pepper.  To bread the cheese, put a handful of cheese pieces into the egg mixture, coating each one entirely.  Finally, transfer the cheese to the breadcrumb bag, shaking until each cheese piece is totally covered.  Place on prepared baking sheet.  Repeat the process until all cheese is breaded.  Cook about 5-6 minutes, just until cheese starts to melt.

1 serving = 4 bites
