Ingredients

  • 6 oz Goat's Milk Mozzarella Cheese (Funny Farm)
  • 1/2 cup GF all-purpose flour (bean blend or garbanzo beans)
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup GF organic rice cereal, finely ground
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • Oil for frying

Instructions

  1. Cut the block of cheese into slices.  Then cut those slices in half lengthwise. Place on a plate in the freezer to chill.

  2. Ground up the cereal and Italian seasoning in a small blender so that you have about a cup of finely ground cereal resembling breadcrumbs.

  3. Place three shallow bowls next to each other for dredging the cheese.  Place the flour in one, the beaten eggs in the next one, and in the third goes the Italian breadcrumbs.

  4. Place each stick into the flour, then the eggs, then the breadcrumbs.  Place onto a plate.  These breaded cheese sticks can be put back into the freezer if needed.

  5. Heat the oil to an appropriate temperature (350 degrees F) in a skillet.  Fry several sticks at a time turning once until nice and brown (about 1 minute on each side).  Place on paper towel covered plate to drain any excess oil.  Enjoy with pizza sauce or goat's milk yogurt ranch dip!
