HG's Fiber-ific Fried Cheese Sticks

HG's Fiber-ific Fried Cheese Sticks

Introduction

Before creating these cheesy faux fried hunks of heaven, we had totally given up on the whole mozzarella sticks thing. Total bar food... completely greasy and horrible for you. Not anymore, thanks to (you guessed it!) a box of Fiber One and our trusty blender. Check out this super swap and prepare to be wowed (and filled with cheese!)...

Ingredients

    2 light mozzarella sticks (50-60 calories and 2.5g fat per stick)
    1/4 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original)
    2 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute
    salt, pepper & Italian seasonings; to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a food processor or blender, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Place crumbs in a small plastic container with a lid. Season crumbs with as much salt, pepper and Italian seasonings as you like. Set aside. Cut cheese sticks in half, so that you have 4 sticks. Place sticks in a small bowl, and pour egg substitute over the top of the sticks. Swirl egg substitute around so that it thoroughly coats the sticks. One by one, transfer sticks to the container with the crumbs. Cover container, and give it a shake to coat the sticks in the crumbs. Carefully return sticks to the dish with the egg substitute, and coat them again. Next put sticks back in the crumbs container, cover, and shake once more to coat (try doing this two at a time the second time around). Place sticks on a baking dish sprayed lightly with nonstick spray. Spritz the tops of the sticks with a quick mist of the spray. Place dish in the oven, and bake for 10 minutes (or until the first sign of cheese oozing out). If desired, serve with warm marinara sauce. Best when eaten immediately, while cheese is hot and gooey!

    My girlfriend and I used Kellogg's All Bran Crackers (Garlic and Herb) for this recipe instead of the Fiber One cereal. The key is to make sure you re-dredged the sticks a second time in the egg substitutes and the crumbs, or the shape won't hold. Excellent side item. Very flavorful! Nice job! - 1/17/09

    Awesome!!!!!!!! I just made these today for my lunch, and they are so good. Just a recommendation...I froze my cheese overnight, and it worked well. Still "gooey" at the end, but it didn't melt all over the pan and the cheese stix kept their shape. - 3/30/09

    My little cheese stick lover gobbled these up and asked for more. It broke my heart to have to tell her no. I'm not really a cheese stick person, but I could see eating these. - 11/26/08

  • Pretty good! Surprised by how good they were. Tried freezing them as suggested by another person but the cheese wasn't as gooey as I like it....my husband even loved them. - 2/26/11

  • My son and I didn't care for these much. The fiber one cereal coating has a sweetness to it that just doesn't seem to go well with cheese sticks. Might have to try it again with the crackers that Hurleyltd suggested. - 10/21/09
