I used the half mozzarella half cheddar string cheese and this worked pretty good except the cheddar seemed to melt faster than the mozzarella and oozed out some. This didn't get as brown as I would have liked but I suppose that is due to keeping them healthy and baking them in the oven instead of deep frying. Don't skip the freezing step because it definitely needs this. Overall great recipe and a healthier alternative. Read More

Okay, I made this recipe and agree with many of the comments saying you should freeze the sticks and that broiling might result in less cheese leakage (will try that next time), but that's not why I'm leaving a negative review - I actually quite liked how these tasted! I am leaving a bad review because I think it is absolutely ridiculous that the author made the nutritional facts appear more healthy by setting the serving size to HALF A MOZZARELLA STICK. That is completely disingenuous, and really not okay. Read More

Really tasty and easy! To make them crispy, I sprayed them lightly with nonstick cooking spray before popping them in the toaster oven. That way the oil was lighter and more evenly distributed than it would've been with drizzled olive oil. I left mine in for a few minutes longer - about seven minutes total. Lastly, I can't say why, but I think the flour step makes a big difference. The egg and breadcrumbs seem to bond better. Read More

Family loves it I made a small batch and they were gone in seconds. They take a little while to bread but cooking only takes minutes. Can't wait to make it again and make a bigger batch Read More

Absolutely AWSOME! Made them as an after school snack and they were gone before I could take a picture. I used only half a cheese stix but you probably could do a whole. Plan on making them again! Read More
