How to cook cheese sticks
Cheese cut into cubes 0.5 cm thick. Prepare 3 bowls. Pour flour into 1, break 2 eggs into 2 and lightly beat them with a fork, pour into 3 and mix thoroughly the breadcrumbs and spices. Roll each cheese stick first in flour, then in a beaten egg, then in a mixture of breadcrumbs and spices. Heat the pan, pour odorless sunflower oil into it (the layer of oil in the pan should be at least 0.5 cm). Put the prepared cheese sticks into the boiling oil. Fry over high heat for 1 minute. When the cheese sticks are browned, quickly remove them and put them on a plate. Serve hot.
