One of my favorite appetizers when eating out was the Cheese Sticks. Now that I am gluten free I can no longer enjoy those wonderful gooey pieces of melted cheese and I miss them. So Saturday I was thinking, really how hard could it be to make them? Every recipe I saw required bread crumbs. Well that is out because GF breadcrumbs are to expensive. So I decided it was up to me. After talking with my dad who gave me some tips I knew I could do it and I am pleasantly surprised at how they turned out. This is a recipe I will probably continue to improve but it does the trick and my kids devoured them!
What you will need:
- 1/4 cup GF Bisquick
- 3/4 cup GF all purpose flour
- 1 tbsp garlic salt
- 1-2 tbsp Italian seasoning.
- 5 eggs
- 12 mozzarella cheese sticks
- oil for frying
|Place the cheese stick in the freezer for at least 30 minutes (while you prepare the other ingredients for sure)|
|In a small bowl mix the eggs and a splash of milk|
|In another bowl combine flour, bisquick, garlic salt, and Italian seasoning|
|Start the oil to warm up, cut your cheese sticks in half. Dip into the egg mixture, then coat in flour mixture. Repeat 2 more times (so coat with flour a total of 3 times!) and set on a pan or cutting board|
|carefully drop 4- 5 cheese sticks in the oil once hot. Cook until it is a golden brown about 3-4 minutes|
When frying be sure to watch carefully so your cheese does not start oozing out. Serve with warm marinara sauce!
