"These are great served hot with salsa or pizza sauce. They take a little effort but are worth it!! The coating is made with finely crushed cornflakes cereal, lightly spiced. " — MS.CHEF

I cut the cheese into sticks half the size suggested and left the sticks to set in the fridge for half an hour. I experienced none of the leakage other reviews have mentioned and the cheese sticks were a big hit with everyone.
Pretty good, considering I made a few changes to the original recipe. instead of cornflakes, I used about 1 and 1/2 cups of seasoned breadcrumbs.
also, If you cut an entire brick of moz. cheese, it makes about 24 semi-big cheese sticks. I did have a few problems with leaking cheese, and after reading other reveiws, I coated each stick 2-3 times with egg and breadcrumb. After baking them at 400 degrees for 8 minutes, the crust wasn't very hard, so I let the cheese harden, then put them in at 425 for another 5 minutes or so.
With these changes, the recipe turned out great!
tryed making sure that cheese was covered by egg and crumbs but still the cheese melted and was quite a mess
These were all right. Nice change from the usual fried stuff, but these were not real easy to coat, I've noticed - the egg and flour mixture didn't make the breading stick too well - I think the flakes were a little too heavy in consistency. I'd make them again, though - probably with a few changes to the mixture.
I thought that I would give these a shot using bread crumbs instead of the cornflakes. When I took them out of the oven after the 8 minutes they looked fine, but the breading looked uncooked, so I turned the oven off & let them sit in there a few minutes, and they melted. The breading held it's shape & everything, but some of the cheese leaked out. I think that next time I will use the whole egg, instead of just the white & see what happens then. Even with the "leaky" cheese they were good (I mean they are just going to get chewed anyway, right)? Something to tinker with, thanks Lynda.
Yup, these were leakers! Thought I'd give these a try because they're healthier than frying. They just melted away. Although they were certainly good in taste, I'll have to stick to my fry daddy way of cooking cheese sticks.
The cheese was over melted and the bread crumbs did not stick. Will try these again. Maybe it wasn't beginners luck. But will try them again!
I tried this recipe because it called for corn flakes instead of bread crumbs, since I didn't have any at the time. I threw the corn flakes, oregano and garlic salt in the food processor and blended them until they were very fine. This made the coating stick a lot better than if they were just crushed by hand. I deep fried them just until cheese began to try to leak out. They came out crunchy and tasty. Will do again!
