Number of Servings: 1


    1 Frigo light string cheese (or other brand)
    1/2 cup Fiber One sereal, crushed (may also use Panko bread crumbs)
    1/4 cup Egg Beaters
    1 tbsp Italian seasoning, to taste
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    Optional: low-fat marinara sauce (for dipping)


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 2 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
Olive oil. 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! Makes 1 serving. Nutrition info calculated without marinara dipping sauce.

    After reading several comments, I decided to use italian bread crumbs and panko crumbs. I combined 1/4 cup of italian bread crumbs with 1/4 panko crumbs. I also used light mozzarella sticks that were 50 calories each. Overall, a pretty good snack since the majority of the calories were cheese. - 3/22/09

    This absolutely is in the Hungry Girl Cookbook, 200 Under 200. That said, I have recipes in my spark cookbook that are from outside sources, but i am sure to reference the original source, "e.g ' from Cooking light, or Clean Eating, or another sparker's page". - 10/17/09

    Who cares about where the credit goes to...this is not about the person who made the recipe, but more about sharing the recipe and obviously if there is a website it's open to the public...

    The recipe sounds great and I'm excited to try it, Thanks for sharing this recipe on sparkpeople :)
