If you're concerned regarding the sodium content, you can use No Salt Added flavored bread crumbs as well as omitting the dashes of salt... Submitted by:

This sounds very good. I edited it a little. I made the recipe for 4 servings by adding a total of 4 cheese sticks, added some marinara sauce into the nutrition info, took out the salt, and used egg whites instead of egg substitute. The nutrition info changed to less carbs and more protein. Submitted by:

I don't understand why anyone would not know what something is: we're on the internet, search for what you don't know!! I would highly encourage everyone to use a high fiber cereal for the coating-- you want to counterbalance the higher fat in the cheese, with a carbohydrate high in fiber. Submitted by:

I love the ingredients separately, but I didn't really like them together. It was easy to make, and the texture & appearance approximated mozz sticks, so it's worth a try with bread crumbs. I used egg whites and went heavy on the italian spices, so sodium wasn't a problem for my recipe. Submitted by:

These were excellent! BTW, since nutrition info is based on all the crumbs and egg being used (they're not) and since light cheese sticks are only 60 calories, the calories on these are MUCH lower. Excellent way to cover cheese stick cravings! P.S. Using container for crumbs really helped!!! Submitted by:

To those concerned with sodium, the sodium in the recipe is so high because it includes three dashes of salt. If you do not add extra salt, the sodium is 420 per serving (and that is assuming all of the EggBeaters and FiberOne get used, which I'm guessing would not be the case.) Submitted by:

I LIKE STRING CHEESE! I ALSO EAT FIBER ONE CEREAL FOR BREAKFAST. WITH READING THE POSTS BEFORE ME, I WILL NOT TRY THIS RECIPE. SOUNDS TOO CONFUSING/MEASUREMENT MIX UP-?? I'LL STICK TO EATING THE CHEESE AND MY CEREAL BY ITSELF. Submitted by:

I need to get low-fat cheese sticks and make this! I love that it has so much protein and fiber. I should try breading stuff with healthy cereal more often :) Submitted by:

My daughter & I just made (a modified version of these) & they were GREAT. Made w/ ground (ranch flavored) kashi crackers, parm cheese, onion & garlic powder. Much lower sodium. No need to add any salt!! Submitted by:

I don't think that anything with this much sodium per serving can be considered "healthy". It sounds delicious, but for those who have high blood pressure it is definitely on the "do not eat" list. Submitted by:
