I’ve been craving mozzarella sticks for months. That warm gooey cheese with marinara sauce is something I haven’t been able to replicate in a gluten free form. 

When I saw this recipe on Pinterest I had to give it a try.
I dipped the string cheese in milk and then rolled them in gluten free bread crumbs I had made.

This is how they turned out.

They tasted great–I think, but it’s been so long I’m not a good judge. 

I can’t say that pinterest failed me, but I’m not happy with the results.

I couldn’t get the bread crumbs to stick.

Can someone tell me a better way to do this?

Here’s my Marinara Recipe

2 small cans tomato sauce
1 14.5 oz. can Fire Roasted Diced tomatoes (I use Muir Glen with garlic)
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

Put it all in a pan and let it simmer about 20 min.

Thanks for this gluten free salsa recipe goes to my long time friend, Brenda. 

This is going to be delish on my scrambled eggs.
