Pretty tasty. I'm not sure what was served by cutting the cheese in half. We would have preferred whole ones. I used 3 egg whites as was recommended by a reviewer. I also did not use the 2 tbsp. of butter. I just sprayed them with some nonstick spray. For my breadcrumbs I used some regular and some pretzel pieces and then left off the salt. These would be great at a finger food dinner or for the super bowl. But you need to eat them right away because they cool quickly!

Great recipe! I think I'll use seasoned breadcrumbs instead next time, as the oregano just wasn't enough, but then again, the plain coating didn't matter once I started dipping in the heated marinara sauce! Yum! My fingers got pretty goopy trying to coat these, what with all the back-and-forthing between the egg whites and breadcrumbs! Next time, I'll use 3 egg whites, for two were barely enough.
