One of the few things I have missed since being gluten free is mozzarella sticks. Not that I ever had them very often but there is something very nostalgic about cheesy, crispy sticks of warm goodness. Normally my favorite are the drive in kind with the tomato sauce on the side but they normally weigh in at over 500 calories a serving. Well my version is not only gluten free but its also very low in fat. Even better is the kids wont notice the difference.
6 Light Mozzarella Sticks ( Unwrapped and Cut in Half)
2 oz Corn Meal
2 oz Almond Flour
1 oz Skim Milk
1 Tbs Italian Seasoning
2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Paprika
Place the cheese sticks in the freezer while you prepare everything else. In one bowl mix the milk and egg. In the second bowl mix the corn meal, flour, seasoning, salt and paprika. Remove cheese from freezer and coat in the egg mixture. Then role the pieces in the flour mix until well coated. Then dip again in egg and pack in flour mix to make sure you wave a thick coating. Placed each one on a well sprayed cookie sheet and spray the top of each. Bake at 45o degrees for a ten minutes turning halfway until they are golden brown. Make sure you keep an eye on the and that they do not become melted.
Serve hot out of the over with tomato sauce. Enjoy!
