Hi, I'm Miranda. And, today I'm gonna show you to make cheese sticks. So, we're gonna be able to enjoy all that like tasty, delicious, satisfying crunch from this deep fried mozzarella cheese sticks without the fat from the deep frying. Who doesn't love that? I have our ingredients all laid out here so let's get cooking. So, we're gonna start with 4 cups of Rice Krispies, crunched and crashed down to one cup. Then, we have a half a teaspoon of garlic salt, a half a teaspoon of oregano, a quarter of a cup of all-purpose flour, 2 egg whites, 2 tablespoons of water and then 1/8 ounce block of mozzarella cheese. Okay, so we are gonna begin by adding in the oregano and the garlic salt here. Just mix this around, the crashed Rice Krispies. Awesome. And, then, I have these 2 shallow- you can either use like shallow bowls or pipe [unk] I have here 'cause we're gonna have a little assembly line. We're gonna do a little assembly line goodness. So, let's do the flour in one and then we'll add a water into our egg whites. Give that a nice little whip, mix it altogether and pour that here. Brilliant. Okay. Put that to the side and we can just sit those over here for a minute because we were gonna make our mozzarella sticks. So, this is fun. So, we are gonna make a total of 16. So, I'm gonna cut it in half here and then I need a total of 8 sticks on each side to make 16. Okay. And, then let's cut this into 4's. Beautiful and then so Look, we have 8 little cheese sticks and I'm just gonna do the same for this one. Okay, so I have my little assembly line and then over here I have a baking sheet lined with foil and then you know spray with cooking sprays which is nice and grease. The oven behind me is pre-heated to 400 degrees so let's get cooking. So, we're gonna begin by just dipping a cheese stick in flour, drenching it in the flour. Okay. And then we're gonna get our hands dirty. This is fun, should be fun thing for kids. Drop it in the egg mixture. Gonna make sure it's nice and coated, slippery. I'm warning you. Okay. And, then into the cereal mixture. Do not be shy. Fantastic. And, then flap it on here and we're just gonna continue until all of our cheese sticks are nice and covered. All right, so my cheese sticks are all ready to pop in the oven. So, we're gonna put them in the oven at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes until the cheese is nice and melted and gooey and the outsides are a little bit brown. So, who needs to go to a restaurant? Because look we have made our very own cheese sticks again with none of the fat from frying. We baked them, they're yummy, gooey, delicious. Now, for a little something different I have been them paired here with a little bit of salsa or you could do you know Marinara Pizza Sauce or just eat them plain but, make sure they're hot and make sure you enjoy your cheese sticks.
