Now, I loveeeee Fried Cheese sticks as much as the next guy...But what happens when You don't have Mozzarella...Or Bread crumbs for that matter? You improvise! And thus. The Nickel City Cheese Sticks were born!
I didnt have Mozzarella. So I used Extra Sharp NY white Cheddar. And Boyyyy, was that good!
I hope you enjoy these, I know I did!
