Fried Cheese Stick

My oldest daughter loves fried mozzarella sticks. She loves them. I actually think she could live off apples and fried mozzarella sticks. So, she decided to make her own. I suggest she should try other cheeses. She decided cheddar and it takes like a very rich grill cheese. The mozzarella sticks were wonderful with the gooey inside. They are very rich and delicious. 
Cheddar sticks
Fried Cheese Sticks
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup all purpose flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup bread crumbs
2 Tbsp dried oregano (or Italian seasoning)
4 oz. mozzarella cheese
4 oz. cheddar cheese

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a pot over medium heat. 
  2. Place the flour spread out onto a plate.
  3. Place the two eggs in a bowl next to the flour plate.
  4. Place the bread crumbs with the oregano onto another plate next to the egg bowl.
  5. Slice the cheese into 1 inch strips.
  6. Dip the cheese one at a time into the flour and coat on all sides. 
  7. Dip the floured cheese strip into the beaten eggs to lightly coat.
  8. Dip the egg dipped cheese strip into the bread crumbs and coat well.
  9. Carefully add the cheese strip into the heated oil. 
  10. Cook for about 1 minute and then carefully turn the cheese stick over. 
  11. Cook the cheese stick on the other side for about one minute or until golden brown on all sides. If the oil becomes too hot, turn it down or the cheese will escape the bread coating.
  12. Remove the golden cheese sticks from the heated oil and place on a lined paper toweled plate.
  13. Allow the cheese stick to cool for a few minutes before serving since they will be very hot.
