      Wonderful! Best recipe for coating I've found. Definitely needs a double-coat. I used 1 tsp garlic powder instead of the minced garlic, and I used cheese curds. Fabulous!

      These were great! I also used italian bread crumbs and mozz chesse sticks. I coated the sticks twice and put them in the freezer for 15 mins, then deep fried them on 350 until golden. Thanks for this delish recipe!
