For Valentine's Day, the boyfriend went all out. I hadn't eaten a cheesestick in 2 1/2 years. When I got home from work, he surprised me with some :)
- Udi's bread
- 1 T parsley
- 1 T salt
- 1 T garlic powder
- Mozzarella cheesesticks
- 2 eggs
- Canola oil - about 3 inches deep in a saucepan
- Spring roll wrappers - We found some that are gluten free in our neighborhood Kroger
Here we used 1 of my parents' farm fresh Speckled Sussex eggs (top) and a store bought egg (bottom). You can see the difference in color between the two. The yolk of a farm-fresh egg is more firm and well-defined.
With the oil at about 365 degrees, drop in the cheesestick. It will cook quickly, less than 2 minutes. Judge it by the color & texture of the breadcrumbs. (If the temperature is too high, the crumbs will cook but the cheese will remain room temperature.)
Enjoy :) And if you have a variation you'd suggest, please let me know! Happy eating!
