  • Meanwhile, for croutons, preheat broiler. Cut cheese into 1/2-inch pieces. In a shallow dish whisk together egg white, water, and mustard. Place bread crumbs in another shallow dish. Dip cheese pieces in egg white mixture to coat. Toss cheese in bread crumbs until coated. Place coated cheese pieces on a baking sheet. Lightly spray croutons with cooking spray. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes or just until coating is crisp and golden but cheese is not melted.
