Ingredients

  • 12 string cheese, cut in half

  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon parsley

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. To a small bowl, add egg white, water, garlic powder, basil, oregano and parsley. Using a fork, lightly beat it and set it aside.
  4. Working with one wonton wrapper at a time, brush the edges with a light coating of egg wash.
  5. Place a piece of cheese in the middle and fold in the sides.
  6. Fold the top over and roll toward the opposite end. Press to seal all edges. Try to make sure there is no openings so the cheese doesn’t ooze out.

  8. Lightly brush the top of each mozzarella stick with egg wash.
  9. Place baking sheet on the bottom rack in oven and bake for 5 minutes.

  11. Garnish with fresh basil and serve with marinara sauce.
