How to make homemade cheese sticks

In the Philippines, cheese sticks are everybody's favorite snack. Not only is it affordable, but it's also delicious. It is a two-ingredient snack that is very easy to make. The softness of the cheese and crunchiness of the fried wrapper are fabulous when paired with a very cold drink. This is a different version of the famous deep-fried mozzarella sticks that are served in French restaurants. Follow my recipe to learn how to make this tasty snack that you can enjoy at home.

Hi Eric,

They are not the same, but can be used as a replacement of lumpia wrapper. All of these once fried result to crunchy texture.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on August 31, 2018:

Great stuff.

Are "rice paper", Lumpia paper" and "spring roll paper" all the same??

Hi Liz,

Yes, I tried battered mozzarella when I visited France last time. It tasted so good.

Hi Mary,

Yes, sometimes topped with cheese powdered or served with mayo-ketchup dip. This is also popular in an Italian restaurant.

Hello Pamela,

I love to prepare this ahead of time and simply pull it out from my freezer if crave for it. Absolutely, one of my favorites.

Hello Miebakagh,

It's so simple, try it!

Liz Westwood from UK on August 29, 2018:

These look great. I have a friend who makes good cheese straws, but they are more like pastry with grated cheese incorporated in the mixture.

Mary Norton from Ontario, Canada on August 29, 2018:
