Make this appetizer favorite at home! The crispy, golden brown outside holds rich, gooey melted cheese.
lb Monterey Jack, Cheddar, Swiss or mozzarella cheese, cut into 3x1/2-inch sticks
cup Original Bisquick™ mix
Marinara sauce, if desired
Place cheese sticks on tray; freeze at least 1 hour.
Heat 2 inches of oil to 375ºF in large heavy saucapan or follow manufacturer's direction on deep fryer. Beat Bisquick mix, paprika, milk and egg until smooth. Dip cheese, 1 stick at a time, into batter, covering cheese completely.
Fry 8 to 10 sticks at a time 1 to 2 minutes, turning carefully, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve with marinara sauce.
Take a dip! Serve cheese sticks with salsa, spaghetti or pizza sauces--they’re perfect for dipping.
Freezing the cheese first allows the outside to get crispy before the cheese starts to melt.
