Cheese Sticks

I don't know how many times I have tried to make yummy cheese sticks. They usually taste pretty good, but the cheese tends to melt and come out of the batter, leaving a huge mess in my fryer. These cheese sticks were amazing! They not only stayed together, but they tasted great too! They were simple and a fun addition to any meal. My hubby said they were the best cheese sticks he had ever eaten, which was a huge compliment because he likes to order these when we go out to dinner...so I was very flattered. Give them a try at your house...see how they measure up to your favorite cheese sticks.

Homemade Cheese Sticks

2 c. canola oil (to fry them in)
4 eggs
1 c. milk
2-3 c. panko bread crumbs
1 t. onion powder
1 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. pepper
20 mozzarella string cheese
20 egg roll wrappers

Heat oil in a saucepan OR if you have a fryer, use it for cooking the cheese sticks.

In a bowl, whisk eggs and milk. In another bowl mix seasonings and panko. Dredge 1 entire side of egg roll wrapper into the egg wash. Place 1 cheese stick on the wrapper. roll wrapper, tucking ends as you go. Continue rolling until it looks like an egg roll. Dip rolled wrapper in egg wash again and then roll in panko crumb mixture. Continue until all cheese sticks are rolled. Cook 1-2 sticks at a time if your using a saucepan OR 3-4 at a time if you have a large fryer. Cook each one for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Place cooked cheese sticks on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the oil. Eat while hot! IF you want, you can dip these scrumptious little sticks in ranch OR fry sauce...or eat them as is, any ol' way you choose is "lip smackin" good!

  1. If you use WW string cheese, these are not too bad for points either.
