Ingredients

  • 5 slice bread, sprouted, whole grain
  • 2 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup flour, whole wheat
  • 8 stick string cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Place the frozen bread in a blender or food processor and pulse until uniform medium crumbs form.
  • Stir in cheese, olive oil, and Italian seasonings.
  • Place the breadcrumb mixture in a small but wide dish. In another dish, add the egg, fork-whisked with a tablespoon of water. In a third dish, place the flour.
  • Unwrap the cheese sticks, and roll each one first in the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs. Make sure each stick is well coated, then place it on a greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake 6-8 minutes, checking frequently, until cheese is just melted but not too runny.
  • Serve hot with marinara sauce for dipping.
