Fried Goo with Dracula Dip

Just about everyone loves fried cheese sticks. Our version gets a punch of heat from cayenne pepper and cheese spiced with jalape├▒os. To tame the heat, use plan Monterey Jack (without the peppers), mozzarella or Swiss cheese and either leave out the cayenne pepper or use less of it.

  • Yield: 28 cheese sticks

Ingredients

  • 2 (8-oz.) pkgs. Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Optional: marinara sauce

Preparation

Cut cheese crosswise into 3/4-inch slices. Lay slices flat and cut in half lengthwise.

Combine flour and cayenne pepper; stir well. Combine bread crumbs and parsley in another bowl; stir well. Dip cheese sticks in beaten eggs. Dredge in flour mixture. Dip coated cheese in egg again; dredge in bread crumb mixture, pressing firmly so that crumbs adhere. Place cheese sticks on a wax paper-lined baking sheet and freeze at least 30 minutes.

Heat 2 inches of oil in a Dutch oven to 375┬░. Fry cheese sticks until golden. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with marinara sauce, if desired.
