Number of Servings: 1


    1 Frigo light string cheese (or other brand)
    1/2 cup Fiber One cereal, crushed (may also use Panko bread crumbs)
    1/4 cup Egg Beaters
    1 tbsp Italian seasoning, to taste
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    Tomato sauce (optional, not included in nutritional info)


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.

    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.) - 12/17/08

    I used the Uncle Sam's cereal (since it has flaxseed) and ground it up really fine. It was soooo good!! It was a little messy to make, but that was more my fault than the recipe. Will definitely make them again!! - 6/30/08

    Super delicious! Thanks for the recipe. There are some really RUDE comments submitted about this recipe. Shouldn't we be encouraging people to post instead of bombarding them with nasty messages? Sheesh.. - 7/10/08

    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. - 7/28/09
