Homemade Mozzarella Cheesy Sticks

 

1 package (8 ounces) string cheese 

2 & 1/4 cups original Bisquick

2/3 cups milk

1 can of marinara sauce for dipping (heated) OR if your feeling extra saucy ranch is yummy!
1 tablespoon butter (melted)
1/3 teaspoon garlic powder
 
Preheat ove to 450 degrees. Mix together baking mix & milk until a soft dough forms. Place dough on hard flat surface sprinkled w/ baking mix powder. Gently roll in the baking mix, coating the dough w/ a bit of the powder. Roll formed dough into a large ball shape (Knead for about 10 seconds). Roll out w/ rolling pin (you want it to be about 1/4 inch thick). Cut into 8 rectangle shapes (about 6x2 rectangles). Roll each piece of dough around each piece of string cheese pinching the ends together. Place seam side down on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-12 minutes @ 450 or until golden brown. Brush w/ melted butter & garlic powder before removing from baking sheet.
 
(An excellent add on idea is to also wrap some turkey or ham lunch meat around the string cheese, before rolling in the dough!)
