Fried Cheese Sticks


OK – let’s be frank – Fried Mozzarella Sticks are good.  Seriously, how can they taste bad when they are coated with egg, flour and seasoned bread crumbs then deep fat fried.  Yummy – especially at a bar or watching the game.

Here is a Low Carb alternative.  Fried Queso Blanco Cheese.  This cheese can be fried to a golden brown and not melt into a puddle.  Found this at Costco where they were demonstrating it and giving away a taste.

Ingredients

1/2 to 1 pound queso blanco or queso para freir cheese.

Canola oil, optional.  If using a non-stick pan, oil is not needed.

Instructions

  1. Cut the queso blanco into squares or sticks – your choice.
  2. Heat the pan to medium-high (with oil if required) and sear the queso blanco.
  3. Turn as each side browns. Don’t worry if you don’t quite get all the edges, it’s hard to do.
  4. Drain on paper towels.
  5. Serve with your favorite taqueria type salsa for dipping.  I took some Bruschette and blended it with a hot pepper seasoning. The mildly salty cheese holds up well against spicy chipotle and chili salsas, while providing a nice balance to the heat.
