Mozzarella Sticks

Well this recipe did not go well at all for me. First I didn't read the directions properly, which is like a major beginners mistake. Secondly, the recipe just didn't seem to work when I followed the directions to the letter. The mozzarella sticks came out soggy and cold in the center, I didn't even try offering them to anyone. I may revisit the recipe some day, but I will have to rethink my approach.

1 cup whole0wheat breadcrumbs
1 tbsp flaxseed meal
1 tbsp sesame seeds (optional)
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
1/2 cup cauliflower puree
1 tbsp cornstarch
Nonstick cooking spray
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt

1.In a bowl, toss the breadcrumbs with the flaxseed meal and sesame seeds.
2.In a seconds large bowl, stir together the mozzarella, cauliflower puree, and cornstarch until well combined. Shape into eight 2x1/2 inch logs. Gently roll each log in the breadcrumbs, then wrap in aluminum foil or waxed paper and freeze for 20 minutes.
3. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set it over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the oil. Arrange the mozzarella sticks in the pan in a single layer, being careful no to crowd them. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, turning occasionally, until the crumb coating begins to brown. Sprinkle with salt and serve with ketchup.
