Baked Chipotle Mozzarella Cheese Bites

This post was sponsored by Weight Watchers as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.
These bite size breaded cheese bites make a delicious party food or snack for game day! Tossed in a spicy chipotle seasoning, they are made with Weight Watchers Light String Cheese and are baked not fried! even better, you can make ahead and freeze them.
 Then bake right before your guests arrive!
One of the snacks my whole family loves is string cheese. It's not only tasty but fun to eat and a healthy choice for snack time! I pack them in our lunches, we take them on picnics and road trips, and I keep a pack in the snack tray in the fridge whenever someone wants a healthy snack at home. Our local Walmart carries a large variety of Weight Watchers Light String Cheese, which is my family's go to brand. I like that it is made from milk and only 50 calories and 1 SmartPoints per serving!

Ingredients: 

  • 12 count package Weight Watchers Light Mozzerella String Cheese
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tbsp chipotle chile pepper seasoning {use half if you want less spicy}
  • Your favorite dip, for serving 

Directions: 

  1. Unwrap the string cheese and cut each stick into 1 inch cubes.
  2. Make a breading station by setting out three plates or large bowls.
  3. Add beaten eggs to one, flour to one, and mix together panko and chipotle seasoning for the third plate. 
  4. First, dip the cheese cubes in flour, shake off excess, then dip in egg and then coat with the seasoned panko.
  5. Place on a plate and repeat with all remaining cheese cubes. 
  6. Place the coated cheese in the freezer for 30 minutes {this helps them not ooze out in the oven}.
  7. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  8. Remove cheese from the freezer and place them on a lined baking sheet.
  9. Bake for 8 minutes or until golden brown. 
  10. Remove from oven and place on a serving platter along with your favorite dip. I like Chipotle Ranch or Marinara.
Start by unwrapping the cheese sticks and then cut each stick into 5 or 6 1 inch cubes.
 You should have about 60-70 cubes.
 Time for some spice! I use 2 tbsp chipotle chile pepper seasoning.
You can use half if you want it less spicy.
Mix together the panko breadcrumbs with the chipotle.

Save time and make these cheese bites in advance! Bread them then freeze on a baking sheet or plate until frozen solid. Then place in a freezer bag in the freezer until ready to bake. 
I like to serve my cheese bites with Chipotle Ranch dip. 
Simply mix in 1/2 tsp Chipotle seasoning to Ranch dressing and serve. 
A delicious snack for game day or parties! I bet you can't eat just one!
