    There are a few different approaches. I.e. mozzarella cut in strips, dipped in egg/breadcrumb etc mixture, fried; or same using string cheese wrapped in egg roll wrappers (baked w cooking spray). If you go the breadcrumb/egg dipping mixture, you might chill/refrigerate to firm them up before frying . Make a dipping sauce of marinara, pesto or whatever you like. You might take a look at the recent thread about problems w breading sticking to chicken tenders for some tips.

    Bread them in breadcrumbs with italian seasonings, S & P and maybe some parmesan or pecorino romano.  Use a little more pressure than usual to help them adhere.  Place them on a sheet pan and freeze them for 2 to 3 hours.  This helps them not leak when frying.  Since there are so few ingredients they are much better with bread crumbs you make yourself.
