What I Did: I was having a craving for some comfort food when I remembered we had recently purchased a giant back of mozzarella cheese sticks from Costco, and that I had pinned a really simple recipe for baked mozzarella sticks a few weeks earlier.
It started out really well. I snipped the cheese sticks in half, dipped them in milk, then rolled them in a bread crumb mix I made with plain bread crumbs, garlic salt, basil, and oregano. It smelled really good and I thought they was going to turn out to be delicious.
I followed the directions and baked them at 425f for 10 minutes. When I opened the oven, I saw that the coating hadn’t helped them hold their shapes at all and they were now one flat, ugly breaded cheese-sheet. They did taste good, though.
Next Time I Will: The only thing I can think of that I may have done wrong was use fat-free milk to roll the cheese in, since it’s thinner than whole milk and may not have worked as well to keep the coating together. Other than that, I followed the instructions completely.
