Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

My kids love cheese sticks....who am I kidding, I do too! Everyone was so excited when I announced that I was going to tempt to make them from scratch. I admit that it was a trial and error adventure, but I think that I finally mastered them. They are delicious and alot easier than you might think. Everyone gobbled them right up...there was nothing even left over for a later snack....I should have set some aside so I could have had another one later, but honestly I didn't think they would have eaten everything. NOTE: Make a lot!!!

Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
1 lb string cheese (could use a mozzarella brick, cut into strips)...cut each piece of string cheese in half 
   lengthwise and then FREEZE them!
3 eggs, beaten
2 T. water
1 c. flour
1/4 c. cornstarch
2 boxes extra crispy Shake-n-Bake
1 t. garlic powder
1 t. onion powder

Mix flour and cornstarch in a mixing bowl. Mix Shake-n-Bake and seasonings in a separate bowl. Mix water and egg together in another bowl. Remove cheese from the freezer. Dip each cheese stick in egg, then roll them in the flour. Dip in the egg wash again, then roll in Shake-n-Bake. Place on wax paper and chill for an hour. In a large skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 375 degrees. Fry chilled cheese sticks until golden brown. Serve with ranch dipping sauce or pizza sauce.

Happy Cooking~

  4. Finally made these and they were amazing. I used Weight Watchers mozarella cheese sticks and since you cut them in half, they weren't even a point for the cheese itself, just for the breading and oil. Another family favorite...
