½ cup whole wheat bread crumbs
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon dried rosemary
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour
12 part-skim mozzarella sticks, cut in half crosswise
Dip each cheese stick in flour, shake off the excess, then dip in eggs, again shaking off the excess, and finally dredge in the breadcrumbs mixture, gently pressing to coat. Use one hand for dipping in the egg mixture and one for the dry plates, to avoid a sticky mess.
Place the coated cheese sticks on the prepared baking sheet.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray them with olive oil spray. Bake 5 minutes, turn, spray with more olive oil spray and bake 5 more minutes, until golden and crisp. Serve immediately.
