"At the request of my lovely 12 year old daughter, I am posting these, one of her favorite foods. We searched for a recipe together and ended up adapting one to suit our tastes. Enjoy!"

"This was a hit with my family. I found that it was more effective in keeping the bread crumbs on when I dipped it in the egg before and after rolling it in the flour and the bread crumbs. It also helped to keep the cheese within the coating a lot better. I still haven't perfected it but I'm getting there."
"It is too bad that I can not rate them higher then a five star! I have been trying to find a mozzarella chesse stick that did not have an over-powering spice mix flavor. Now that I have, I will ONLY make this recipe for my cheese sticks. What a shame that my son was sick on the day that I made them, I had to eat them ALL on my own."
"Superb! I dipped them in egg first before the flour to help it stick better, then continued as written. I got them thoroughly frozen before cooking, and they did not leak at all! They had a lovely thick golden crust and were just yummy."
"Awesome...I never though mozzarella sticks would turn out so good without deep frying. Freezing them before frying really makes a difference. This was so good and unbelievably quick to put together. I used the Organic Valley lowfat string cheese to make mine. Perfect with warm marinara."
"Ultra yummy and just like in restaurants! Only I was able to make these a tad healthier by using low-fat string cheese, used just the egg whites for batter, and homemade panko with Italian seasoning, and fried in olive oil. They also freeze well for re-baking! Served with my Recipe #394646 for a tasty meal."
"They were delicious!!!!!! My daughter LOVED them she said that she could eat them every day at recess. A keeper!"
"Thanks so much for the recipe.Thursday is home-made pizza night here and I forgot the cheese sticks we like with it.I only had a block of cheddar as I used all the mozzarella for the pizza.They are very good.It only takes a few seconds on each side to cook.I mixed bread crumbs with corn flake crumbs with great results.I may try buttermilk with the eggs next time."
"This recipe is awesome!!! I definitely agree with the others that you do egg then flour but other then that, this is great!!! I don't foresee us buying store bought mozzarella sticks anymore!!!!"
"Oh boy, these were so good. Not something I would crave very often, just because they're so rich, but when the mood strikes, I'll be making these again. Thanks for posting the recipe."
"tasty and easy to make!!"
"Will never buy cheese sticks again. Wonferful recipe. Will probably make the sticks a little smaller next time."
"followed the receipt and deep fried them at 375 for 45 secs. turned out great"
"Comfort food at it's best. We loved it. Thank you."
"DD#2 made these yesterday for our football party. They were gone in seconds....yes seconds. When she brought them out everyone was on their feet and grabbing for one. We used the string cheese and it was perfect. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us. We all loved it."
"My kids loved these. The double coating of breadcrumbs gave them a thick, crunchy crust. I froze mine before frying and they came out perfect!"
"pretty good, a little fat, maybe next time i will half the recipe and cute the sticks thinner, thanks for another good recipe."
"I didn't have mozzarella, so I cut up a block of Cheddar into 1/2" square, 3" long sticks. I also didn't have Italian style breadcrumbs, so I used Panko mixed with Italian seasoning. These were easy to make, a little messy to fry, but very yummy! My kids didn't like the smell as they cooked, but ate them without complaint when they were done. :) Thanks for an easy snack!"
"Absolutely amazing. I used Garden Herb Cheddar Cheese sticks and regular non-seasoned breadcrumbs. I also substituted soy milk for regular milk (made no difference to the taste). OMG they tasted amazing, they took no time to prepare and even less time to fry. Thank you for posting P.S. I tried to place this review before, but found it was not added, so here it goes again...if there happens to be 2 reviews from me about this recipe, its okay its worth it."
"These are fantastic! Everyone gobbled them up so quick! I will never buy the frozen kind again, they don't even compare!"
