Baked Gluten Free Mozzarella Sticks

Appetizers and desserts are two of my favorite types of foods.  However when eating Gluten Free both can be a challenge!  Restaurants especially seem to have limited options for these foods.  So I have been slowing working on making Gluten Free versions of some staple restaurant appetizers like onion rings and potato skins.  My most recent creation is Baked Gluten Free Mozzarella Sticks!!  I baked them so they’d be healthier and to be honest I stink at frying things!  Like fill the house with smoke stink at frying things.   My hubby and I ate these for a late night snack the other night!  So amazing!

Print Recipe

What you Need:
12 part-skim mozzarella sticks
1 egg
2 tbsp GF flour
6 tbsp GF bread crumbs – I used Tall Papa Italian GF Bread Crumbs
2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

How to Make It:
Cut mozzarella sticks in half and freeze for at least an hour on parchment paper on a cookie sheet.

Get your prepping bowls ready.

1 with the GF flour
1 with a beaten egg
1 with the GF bread crumbs and parmesan cheese

Pull out frozen cheese sticks and take them through the prep bowls.  Flour – egg – bread crumbs.

Place back on the parchment paper and freeze for at least 10 minutes. 

Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Grease a foil covered cookie sheet.

Cook the mozzarella sticks for 3 minutes on one side then flip and bake for another 3 minutes.  Keep an eye on them!!   

Serve with GF marinara sauce!

If you don’t want to cook them all at one time just freeze them already breaded for later!  

This one is life changing!

  1. These Tall Papa breadcrumbs are definitely on my wish list – everything you’ve made with them looks amazing! Also thanks for the great freezer idea of writing the heating instructions on the bag – totally using that one :)

    • Jenni,
      I’m addicted to the Tall Papa breadcrumbs! They have such a great flavor and really take dishes to the next level!
      The tip about the freezer bag is great just make sure you write on it before putting in the food – learned that the hard way!! LOL

  2. I always love this food, cheese sticks. Here, we usually fry it. However your pictures look very yummy, I have to try the bake one some time. Thanks a lot!
