Mozzarella Sticks

These yummy finger-food appetizers make a great late night  snack or fun dinnertime accompaniment. These are just like the cheese sticks served in a restaurant,  with the convenience of home.

2 eggs
1 tbsp. water
1 cup dry bread crumbs
1-1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. pepper
12 sticks string cheese*
3 tbsp. flour
1 tbsp. butter, melted
1 cup marinara or spaghetti sauce

In a small bowl, beat eggs and water. In a plastic bag,  combine bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, garlic powder  and pepper. Coat cheese sticks in flour, then dip in  egg mixture and bread crumb mixture. Repeat egg and bread  crumb coatings.  Cover and chill for at least 4 hours, or overnight
(this step is very important, or the cheese will melt and  flatten during baking).

Place on an ungreased baking sheet; drizzle with melted  butter. Bake, uncovered, at 400 for 6 to 8 minutes or  until heated through. Allow to stand 3 minutes before  serving. Use marinara or spaghetti sauce for dipping.  Bottled or homemade seafood sauce is also nice with these.

Yield: 4 appetizer servings.
