Serves: 12 person(s)
Preparation Time: 20 mins
1 tsp Italian seasoning
8 Tbsp panko (Japanese) bread crumbs
1/2 cup low-sodium prepared marinara sauce, warmed (optional)
1 cooking spray
Remove cheese from packaging and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk egg until foamy. In small non-stick skillet, mix Italian seasoning with bread crumbs and place over medium heat. Cook and stir bread crumbs until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
Dip one piece of string cheese in egg until coated and then into toasted bread crumbs, coating completely. Place on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining string cheese and place on baking sheet 1-1/2 inches apart. Spray string cheese lightly with cooking spray.
Bake 5 to 6 minutes or until heated through. (Cheese may melt slightly and lose shape. Simply press it back into place.)
Pair with warmed marinara sauce for dipping (optional).
