Baked Mozzarella Sticks


A slightly healthier version than the fried ones served at the pizzeria.

1 (10 ounce) package string cheese
½ cup flour
¼ cup cornstarch
2 egg whites
2 tablespoons water
1-1/2 cups bread crumbs
1 teaspoon oregano
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
Marinara sauce of your choice

Cut each piece of cheese in half. Combine flour and cornstarch and place on plate. Beat egg whites with water in a shallow bowl. Combine bread crumbs with oregano and place on another plate. First dredge cheese in flour mixture, then dip in egg white mixture and finally coat with bread crumbs. Place on baking sheet and freeze for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle cheese sticks with melted margarine. Bake for about 7 minutes. Serve warm with sauce.
