    What a great alternative to buying the frozen cheese sticks. I used cheddar cheese and skipped the taco mix. I have to admit to making a couple of changes to speed things up and eliminate some of the oil. Instead of sticking the cheese into the fridge after the first coating for 30 minutes, I stuck them in the freezer for about 5 minutes. I also rolled them in the flour first on the second round just as I did in the first round. And, I fried the cheese in about 3 tbsp of canola oil just long enough to get them to slightly brown, and then baked them for about 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven to get the cheese melty. I didn't want to immerse them in oil or leave them in the oil so long, and found this totatlly effective at getting them crispy on the outside and melty on the inside.

    These were so good! I only had cheddar/mozz twists and they were good, but I think all mozz would be better. I don't have a deep fryer, so this is what I did: coat, freezer for 15 mins, coat again, freezer for 15, brown in olive oil in fry pay, then bake at 350 for 10 mins. I wish I would have checked them after 8 min, because my cheese ran out a little bit. They were so good, I don't need to order these out anymore! Thanks!

    I used panko and seasoned it with Penzey's Parisien Bonnes Herbes and salt. I prepared using Karen67's strategy. The panko might provide a less secure coating than bread crumbs, because they leaked quite a bit of cheese. But we ate every morsel and they were a huge hit with my friends.

    These were so good and so much fun to make. DGSs are always ordering these when we go out to eat so decided to try them myself. They are so good and really not that hard. I followed the directions except for doubling it so there would be plenty and they LOVED them. I cooked them in my deep fryer and they were so much fun to watch them float to the top and start to turn brown. DGSs are already asking for a repeat. Now I just have to figure out the right dipping sauce to go with them.

    These were great. I doubled the recipe but otherwise prepared as posted. Prepared for PAC Fall '08.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I'm just a girl whos passion is for cooking, well some people would call it an obbsession rather.... I am a college student at RIT going for food management and prep, my favortie things! Most of my orignal recipes are made from left overs since I cook for one or two most days so there are always left overs in my house. I play mad scientist most days in my kitchen with left over chicken breasts lol. I am also a health food freak and a major gym rat, so I am always on the look out for good subs for the more unhealthy ingredients in most recipes. Also I am just starting to take pictures of the food I make on this site, so my photos are anything but stellar yet so I will not be offended in any way if you chooses not to use my pictures. <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/goldsparkle.png" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <a href="http://s19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/?action=view¤t=tish2.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/tish2.jpg" border="0" alt="Recipezaar Challenge 2008"></a> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Participant.jpg"> <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view¤t=newtaginethbanner.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/newtaginethbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/CV.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-11/484938/Spelling-Bee-stick2jpg.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/ScrapBook.png" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/ApronSwap2007.jpg" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/RedWhiteBlue.jpg" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/KiwiDutch/3chefstag1.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/28636/zwt3banner.jpg"> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a209/tlonghorn/banners/BBQ2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a> <img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/TasteofYellow.jpg> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Derfcookathon.jpg">
