Skinny Mozzarella Bites
Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 3 minutes

Yield: 3 servings

Serving size: 3 mozzarella bites


⅓ cup herb-flavored panko breadcrumbs
3 light string cheese sticks
2 egg whites
¼ cup reduced-sodium marinara sauce

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Heat a medium size skillet over medium heat. Add ⅓ cup of panko breadcrumbs to the pan and cook for 2 minutes or until toasted, stirring the whole time.
Remove from heat and place the breadcrumbs in a shallow dish.
Put the egg whites in a small bowl.
Cut mozzarella sticks into 1-inch pieces.
Working with one piece at a time, dip cheese in egg whites then roll in breadcrumbs. Place cheese on a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray.
Bake for 3 minutes or until cheese is softened and thoroughly heated (without losing too much shape).
Pour the marina sauce into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high one minute or until thoroughly heated, stirring after 30 seconds.
