Mozzarella Dippers

It's no secret that I love cheese, and the discovery of deep fried cheese may have had a lot to do with my weight gain! The takeaway at the end of my street does a portion of 8 mozzarella sticks for less than £3 (which in London is a bargain!!) I was really craving some the other day, but I was good and instead of going to the takeaway I walked straight past it and into the shop and purchased a ball of light mozzarella!! I headed home and made my own baked mozzarella dippers and I have to say they were damn tasty!!
1 Ball of Light Mozzarella
1 Egg
2 tbsp Flour
3 tbsp Breadcrumbs (I use Hale & Hearty gluten free)
1 tsp Italian Herbs
Pinch of Salt and Pepper.
Spray Oil
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Slice the mozzarella.
  3. Whisk the egg in a bowl, put the flour in another bowl and breadcrumbs with italian herbs and seasoning in another.
  4. Spray a baking sheet with oil.
  5. Dip each slice of mozzarella in the flour, then the egg and then breadcrumbs. Place on the baking sheet.
  6. Spray all the dippers with a little oil.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes. Not too long or the mozzarella leaks out everywhere!
  8. Serve with a tablespoon of marinara sauce (I cheated and used light pasta sauce as it was all I had!)
Serves 2 with a propoints value of 8 per serving (propoints calculated using recipe builder on
