Baked Cheese Sticks

Who doesn't love Mozzarella sticks?  I use to love to get these in High School when we would go to Denny's or Village in and just sit and snack on these.  Yummy!  Though making them baked instead of fried makes them not nearly as bad for you.  These are a fun treat that you will love, as will your sweet kids, who will think you are amazing when you make them!


4 C. Corn Flakes
or 1 cup Corn Flake Crumbs
1 garlic salt
1/2 oregano
1/4 all-purpose flour
2 egg whites
2 water
1 (8 oz.) mozzarella cheese

1. Combine CORN FLAKES cereal, garlic salt, and oregano in pie plate or shallow bowl. Place flour in second pie plate or bowl. In another bowl, beat egg whites and water with fork until thoroughly combined.
2. Cut cheese into 12 sticks approximately 2-3/4 inches long. Dip cheese in flour, then in egg mixture, then cereal mixture. Carefully repeat dipping in egg mixture and cereal mixture to double coat completely. Place on foil-lined shallow baking pan coated with cooking spray. Coat remaining cheese using same method. Lightly spray coated cheese sticks with cooking spray. Let stand about 30 minutes.
3. Bake at 400° F for 8 minutes or until cheese is soft and sticks are lightly browned. Serve hot with pizza sauce or salsa, if desired.
