Almost straight from my childhood, these classic mozzarella sticks are just as good as the real breaded thing. A key ingredient here is the powdered Parmesan cheese. Since it is powdered, it mimics the adhesive qualities of breading, but without the carbs. Shredded Parmesan will not yield the same crispy exterior. When I've had a long day, I like to whip these up right when I come home, and then fry a batch for my favorite weeknight shows. These also freeze well if you prefer to make them in advance.
