Fried String Cheese Sticks Recipe!

Oh My LORD!! Please forgive me for this gluttonous behavior, but I have just discovered the most sinful snack!

While opening the third string cheese packet for my 2 year old, an image of melted gooeyness took over my thoughts. While I bread and fry chicken, fish and even ravioli, I had never put the cheese-fry together! I acted on impulse and quickly whipped up a batch for my family. They are pure culinary sin!

Start with some string cheese. I buy a HUGE pack at Costco. I LOVE Costco!

You will need 3 pie plates (or something similar). Fill the first plate with flour.

The second with a couple eggs and a tablespoon of water. Mix.

The third with Italian style bread crumbs.

Roll each cheese stick in flour,

then in the egg wash,

then the bread crumbs.

Continue rolling, dipping and breading until you have enough cheese sticks made for your friends or family. (Because we would NEVER make these to eat by ourselves, right?)

Now these little guys are ready to be baptized! Hallelujah!

Pour enough oil in a frying pan to cover half the stick. Heat oil to med-high. when oil is hot, fry about 20 seconds in the hot oil, and they should be ready to flip. Another 20 seconds or so and Whoo Hoo!! Sin in a stick!

Serve these with my Pizza sauce recipe (On under pasta recipes, pizza) your favorite marinara, or if you are feeling really naughty, RANCH!
