Number of Servings: 6


    1 (12 ounce) package reduced fat Mozzarella string cheese
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
    8 tablespoons panko (Japanese) bread crumbs
    1/2 cup prepared marinara sauce, warmed


Position rack in upper third of oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray. Remove cheese from packaging and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk egg until foamy. In small non-stick skillet, mix Italian seasoning with bread crumbs and place over medium heat. Cook and stir bread crumbs until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Dip one piece of string cheese in egg until coated and then into toasted bread crumbs, coating completely. Re-dip the string cheese in egg and again into the bread crumbs, if desired. Place on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining string cheese and place on baking sheet 1 1/2 inches apart. Spray string cheese lightly with cooking spray. Bake 5-6 minutes or until heated through. Cheese may melt slightly and lose shape. Simply press it back into place. Serves 6.
