"These are great served hot with salsa or pizza sauce. They take a little effort but are worth it!! The coating is made with finely crushed cornflakes cereal, lightly spiced. "

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking pan lined with foil.

  3. Place the flour in a small bowl.
  4. In another small bowl, thoroughly beat the egg whites and water.
  5. Cut the mozzarella cheese into 12 sticks approximately 2 3/4 inches in length. Dip the cheese sticks in the flour, then the egg mixture, then the cereal mixture.

I cut the cheese into sticks half the size suggested and left the sticks to set in the fridge for half an hour. I experienced none of the leakage other reviews have mentioned and the cheese sticks were a big hit with everyone.

Pretty good, considering I made a few changes to the original recipe. instead of cornflakes, I used about 1 and 1/2 cups of seasoned breadcrumbs. also, If you cut an entire brick of moz. cheese, it makes about 24 semi-big cheese sticks. I did have a few problems with leaking cheese, and after reading other reveiws, I coated each stick 2-3 times with egg and breadcrumb. After baking them at 400 degrees for 8 minutes, the crust wasn't very hard, so I let the cheese harden, then put them in at 425 for another 5 minutes or so. With these changes, the recipe turned out great!
