Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks

Few things get me as excited as Pizza Night. Not only do I love eating pizza, but I enjoy the whole process of making it as well. While I have yet to master the throw-your-pizza-up-in-the-air-and-catch-it technique, I am pretty sure I’ve figured out how to make homemade pizza just the way we like it. We are traditionalists when it comes to pizza. A simple pepperoni or Hawaiian pizza made with a thin crust has our names written all over it.

Skinny Mozzarella Sticks

I am not a huge fan of fried things. Never really have been. I make exceptions for scrumptious desserts, but even then I like to go with a shallow fry, like extremely shallow. It’s not just the calories that are less than appealing, but the greasy texture and oily film coupled with the heaviness of such foods are a big turnoff. And don’t even get me started on the mess. The splatters, smell, and cleanup are a neat freaks’ worst enemy. Yep, I better admit it now. I clean up as I go through my kitchen adventures, own an extremely organized pantry, and rinse every single dish before it meets the dishwasher. I just can’t help it. So when I came across a recipe for baked mozzarella sticks a few years back, I couldn’t wait but to give it a try.

*Drool factor. No, serious drool factor. I made these during the lunch hour the other day and couldn’t have been happier about my meal. Warm, melted cheese wrapped in a crispy coating of more cheese and bread crumbs. Dipped in marinara sauce. To say I was a happy camper would be an understatement.

Finger Foods are ruling my world lately and I have nothing negative to say about that. I guess super bowl fever has caught me a few weeks early, but hey, I ain’t complaining. [Read more…]
