Best Cheese Sticks

Mozzarella sticks are coated in a simple batter and quickly deep fried to golden perfection. Try dipping them in a marinara sauce!

 

Ingredients
  • 8 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 6 oz margarine
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg for egg wash
  • 1 cups gruyere cheese shredded
Instructions
  1. To the bowl of your mixer add the ricotta cheese, yogurt, margarine, egg, yeast, salt and beat using the paddle attachment of your mixer over medium until well incorporated. Add 1/2 of the flour, continue mixing until well incorporated then add the remaining flour, switch to the hook attachment and continue mixing until the dough comes off the sides of the bowl.

  2. Place the dough in a large oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or for at least 2 hours.

  3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

  4. Cut the dough into 2 pieces. Sprinkle some flour over your work surface and roll out one of the dough pieces into a rectangle so that it’s about 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut them into long strips and place them onto the prepared baking sheets. You can poke holes into each stick using the end of a skewer, but this step is optional.

  5. Brush the sticks with the egg wash then sprinkle with the shredded gruyere cheese.

  6. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. While the sticks are baking repeat with remaining piece of dough.
