  2. Dip 1 string cheese in breadcrumb mixture than in egg mixture and than back in breadcrumb mixture. Repeat this for all the pieces. Place sticks on a greased foil or pan. Return the cheese stick back to the freezer for at LEAST 30-45 minutes ( Do not skip this step because the cheese will melt if they are not frozen).

After 4 minutes flip the cheese sticks and continue baking for another 3- minutes or until they are golden. Do not overbake because the cheese will melt. Serve Hot with your favorite marinara sauce.
