Deep Fried Cheese Sticks - Freezer Recipe

This is another freezer recipe we decided to try over the weekend. We’ve only tried it a few times, but so far we’ve enjoyed the ones we made. We did it in bulk so we can keep them at hand in the freezer. Here’s the recipe.

  • String cheese sticks. We had about 30, and each stick gives us 2 breaded cheese sticks.
  • Flour for dredging
  • Milk
  • Breadcrumbs

1. Cut string cheese in half

2. Dredge cheese with flour
3. Wet in milk
4. Roll in bread crumbs

5. Wet in milk again
6. Roll in bread crumbs again.
7. Bag them and put them in the freezer.

Fry when you’re ready to enjoy. Just keep an eye out. If it's in there for too long, the cheese will start to seep and it won’t be pretty. This is the part we’re still testing out... the temperature and time for the frying. I’ll update this when we figure it out.

Serve with marinara sauce (or some Ragu pasta sauce, which is what we use).

Doesn't it get a bit gooey when you dredge it in milk? How do you prevent the inevitable sludge of flour/milk when you dredge it the first time?

It gets a bit paste-y after the flour/milk part, best to not use your hands or at least use gloves. The inevitable sludge is pretty minimal, and it helps the breadcrumbs to stick to the cheese. :-) Thx for commenting.
