Panko Baked Cheese Sticks

By JulieVR |

When I was in my twenties, my favorite thing to do was go out for appetizers – lowbrow ones, like chicken wings and mozzarella sticks. Gooey cheese sticks were my favorite – deep fried and oozing with every bite, they were coated in crispy crumbs and served with chunky salsa for dipping. Completely divine. It wasn’t the sort of thing I’d ever make at home, but it turns out they’re simple to make, especially if you start with cheese snack sticks. They need not be deep fried – a quick flip in flour, egg, and panko and a turn in the oven will produce crispy golden cheese sticks, with far less fat, but otherwise just like the ones you get at a restaurant. The kids adore them.

Baked Panko Cheese Sticks

Start with cheese string snacks.

Cut them in half crosswise, or cut cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese into sticks. If you like, pop them into the freezer for a bit - this will keep them from oozing as they bake.

    I tried making these. Followed the recipe to the letter. Mine turned out horrible- the cheese melted right out of the breading and it was a gooey mess and couldn’t even be saved. What a waste. I’ll never make it again and certainly won’t recommend it to anyone else.
