  • 12-16 String Cheese Sticks
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp Lawrys Seasoning Salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup panko crumbs
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • Vegetable Oil for frying


  • Unwrap cheese sticks and cut them in half. (tip: unwrap while cheese stick wrappers are still connected and they will all come off at once).
  • You can use bowls for this next step, but I think using the plastic bags (without a zipper) are less messy and much quicker. (SUGGESTED TIP: I keep a box of these storage bags, without a zipper, on hand at all times. You can use them for so many things!!). In bag #1, toss the flour, paprika and salt. In bag #2, mix the panko, parsley and oregano. In a bowl, beat the eggs and milk together.
  • Now coat your cheese sticks by first tossing 5 or 6 in your milk bowl for a good soaking. Next, throw them in the flour bag and shake, shake, shake. Put them back in the milk bowl, making sure to coat every side. Finally, toss them around in the panko bag for your final coat.
  • Place them on a cookie sheet and freeze for 20-30 min.
  • Heat a few inches of your canola or vegetable oil in a large frying pan. Place sticks, in batches, in the oil and fry until golden brown on all sides (about 30-60 seconds). Drain on a plate lined with a paper towel. Serve immediately with marinara sauce or ranch.
