"These is an easy, cost-efficient way to make home-made fried cheese sticks. Taste just wonderful, light crispiness. More for your dollar and easily stored in the freezer for when you have a craving. I make 2 batches, one for the 'now' and one for later. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce."

  1. Remove string cheese sticks from plastic wrappings and cut the strings in half crosswise.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place eggs in a bowl and bread crumbs into a large shallow bowl.
  3. Dip cheese stick halves into egg and roll in bread crumbs to completely coat the sticks; place breaded cheese sticks onto the prepared baking sheet. Allow cheese sticks to stand at room temperature for about 5 minutes to set, and repeat dipping in egg and bread crumbs to form a thick coating. Freeze breaded cheese sticks for at least 2 hours.
  4. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Deep fry cheese sticks, a few at a time, until the coating is golden brown and crisp and the cheese is soft, 5 to 8 minutes. Let sticks drain on paper towels; cool slightly and serve warm.

I actually made this on a whim after I'd made marinara in the crockpot. What goes better with homemade marinara than fried cheese sticks? I cut this recipe back by half (I didn't want to use 2 1...

yum! these were crispy and delicious. I only used 6 sticks, which reduced the bread crumbs to 3/4 cup. If you're trying to save your crumbs, I'd go with 1/2 cup to start with, since I had some ...

This would be a perfect low carb recipe if you substitute crushed pork rinds for the bread crumbs. Tastes great too!
