Don’t you just love cheese sticks? Fried with the cheese melted and pulling away with each bite? I know I do! I made mozzarella cheese , ricotta also, the other day and 2% at that! It’s been a couple of days and I needed to use it as I don’t know how long it will last.
Fried wasn’t really how I wanted to make these…baked was the way for me. They turned out great. Crunchy on the outside and melted, hot cheese on the inside without the greasy mess that accompanies being fried. Here’s to making cheese and then baking it!
