Fiber-ific Fried cheese sticks

Submitted by: SUMMARIE

Introduction

Mariana sauce is optional and of course less calories! Mariana sauce is optional and of course less calories!
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    2 pieces light mozzarella string cheese
    1/4 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original)
    2 tablespoons fat-free liquid egg substitute (or one egg white)
    Salt, Black pepper, and Italian seasonings, to taste
    Optional dip: low fat marina

Directions

In a food processor or blender, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Place crumbs in a seal-able plastic bag or a container with a lid. Season crumbs with as much salt, pepper, and Italian seasonings as you like. Set aside.

Cut both pieces of string cheese in half so that you have four short sticks. Place sticks in a small bowl and cover them with egg substitute. Swirl egg substitute around so that it thoroughly coats the cheese sticks. One by one, give sticks a shake to remove excess egg substitute and transfer them to the container/bag with the crumbs.

Seal bag or cover container and shake well, coating the sticks completely with the crumbs. Carefully return sticks to the dish with the egg substitute and coat them again. Return cheese sticks to the crumbs, seal or cover, shake once more to coat.

Place sticks in a baking dish sprayed lightly with nonstick spray. Spritz the tops of the sticks with a quick mist of spray.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until the first sign of cheese oozing out. Serve with warm marinara sauce if you like. These are best when eaten almost immediately, while the cheese is still hot and gooey!
