Psst. I have a secret- I really love food – and here is what I have been craving lately:
Don’t the look amazing? They’re my homemade gluten free fried cheese sticks. Here’s the recipe, they are SO simple to make!
Cooking Oil (I used canola), enough to cover 1 inch of your cooking pot
FROZEN Cheese Sticks (I cut ‘real’ cheese (cheddar, actually, but obviously mozzarella would be ideal, too) in to small sticks but you can also use 8 string cheese sticks too, cut in half.
2 eggs, beaten well in a bowl
1 cup gluten free chicken coating (or breadcrumbs if you aren’t gluten-free)
1. Using tongs, coat each piece of cheese with the beaten eggs
2. Place each piece of cheese in a small container of your coating mix, one at a time, gently ‘shaking’ the container back and forth to ensure even coverage
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2
4. Once all the cheese has been coated, gently place them into a hot pot of hot oil to cook. It will take roughly 30-60 seconds in total to cook them. Be careful not to burn them, and ensure that they are not overcooked (cheese will start to ‘leak’ out).
5. Remove them from the oil and place on a plate of paper towels to absorb the extra oil
6. Serve with pizza sauce and enjoy!
