Baked Wonton Mozzarella Sticks

Whenever I go out to eat, and if it's on the menu, I typically order fried mozzarella sticks. They're my absolute favorite app/snack. Sadly, not the most healthiest of choices. Luckily, I found a way to still indulge in my cheesy obsession without all the unnecessary calories (and guilt).

Let me introduce you to my version of healthy cheese sticks:

Baked Wonton Mozzarella Sticks.

Instead of using regular mozzarella cheese, I incorporated Weight Watchers Light Cheese Sticks that I bought from my local Publix supermarket. I also replaced breadcrumbs for wonton wrappers and opted to bake them versus frying them in oil. With these three easy swaps you'll cut a significant amount of calories without sacrificing the taste.  

In less than 15 mins, you'll have a delicious healthier mozzarella cheese stick snack.

Make sure the cheese is frozen before placing in wonton wrapper. This will prevent the cheese from oozing out when baking.

After cheese sticks are wrapped, place in egg wash and roll them into a garlic, basil and parmesan cheese mixture (this step is optional).
