Fried cheese is not a new concept. Mozzarella sticks have been around for a long time and even can be bought in the frozen foods aisle. All you need is cheese and oil to make fried cheese taste good, but there are some tricks and new ideas to take your fried cheese appetizers to the next level.
We recommend moving away from the classic mozzarella and on to goat cheese, provolone, and cheddar. Oh yes, these flavor-packed cheeses will surprise your taste buds.

When it comes to frying, you can choose any high-heat oil but we recommend extra virgin olive oil (evoo).
