Baked Mozzarella Bites

This week is the first week of football.  My husband is a big Philadelphia Eagles fan and we are both happy for football to start.  Yesterday we met up with some friends and did a fantasy football draft.  I like doing fantasy football because I pay more attention to all of the games and its fun to watch all the games and root for our particular players.  
While I love watching football, my favorite part of football is the food. I love making a bunch of appetizers to have with the game.  These Baked Mozzarella Bites are a perfect appetizer for a party or for watching a football game.  These are essentially baked mini mozzarella sticks and are really easy to make.  They are so delicious and healthy as well and can also be made as a snack.  I can’t wait to make these to watch the start of the football season this week!
Baked Mozzarella Bites
(Recipe adapted from My Recipes)
1/3 cup panko
3 sticks low fat mozzarella cheese 
3 tablespoons egg beaters or egg substitute
Marinara Sauce
1.  Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
2.  Heat a skillet over medium heat.  Add the panko to the skillet and cook for 2 minutes or until toasted, stirring frequently.  Remove from the heat and place the panko in a bowl.  Place the egg substitute in another bowl. 
3.  Cut the mozzarella sticks into 1 inch pieces.  Dip the 1 inch pieces into the egg substitute and then into the panko.  Place the cheese onto a greased cookie sheet.  Repeat with all the pieces.  
4.  Bake for 3 minutes or until the cheese is softened and heated.  Serve with marinara sauce.
