How To Make Gooey Cheese Sticks
- 16mozzarella string cheese sticks,(must be string cheese)
- ¼cupcorn starch
- 2tbspolive oil,or vegetable oil
- ¾cupItalian bread crumbs
- ½cuppanko bread crumbs
- oil,for frying
Open the cheese strings and cut each in half. Cover and place in the freezer for at least 2 hours or until completely frozen.
Combine flour and cornstarch in a small bowl. Combine the Italian and Panko bread crumbs in a separate shallow dish. In third small bowl, whisk eggs and olive oil until well combined.
Dip each cheese stick half into the egg mixture and then gently roll into the flour mixture.
Put back into the egg mixture and roll until coated. Finally, place into the bread crumbs pressing the crumbs on each piece of cheese to make sure it’s coated all around so the cheese doesn’t leak out.
Place in the freezer while the oil preheats. Preheat oil to 350 degrees F. It should be hot enough that a few crumbs dropped into the oil will bubble.
In small batches, place breaded cheese sticks into the hot oil for about 2 minutes or just until browned. Do not overcook or the cheese will leak out.
Serve hot with warm pasta sauce.
