Skinny Zucchini Mozzarella Sticks

Skinny Zucchini Mozzarella Sticks

A skinny zucchini mozzarella stick, baked not fried. A perfect appetizer that will keep you in your skinny jeans.

Who doesn’t love cheese sticks? I would venture to say it is basically America’s favorite appetizer. They are practically on every menu at any major restaurant chain. My husband loves them. Personally I never order them because I feel so guilty afterwards.

However, I really love fried zucchini sticks. They probably aren’t much better for you than cheese sticks but somehow I rationalize that they are healthier because its a vegetable. Like my logic? Welcome to my world.
