Gluten Free Baked Cheese Bite Recipe

How delicious are fried cheese sticks?!  Oozing with cheese on the inside and crispy on the outside, totally tasty, but totally not healthy, so I took this appetizer and made it healthier and gluten-free!

Crispy Baked Cheese Bites

I used gluten free cereal combined with Italian seasonings to form a delicious crust around fresh mozzarella balls, then placed them under the broiler for just over a minute so the crust gets nice and crispy, and the mozzarella gets melty and creamy!

I had to bake these several different ways to get them just right, which meant a lot of taste-testing, needless to say it was a tough day in the kitchen! 😉
