Fried Cheese Sticks - GFCFSF

1 eight ounce package of Daiya's Havarti cheese
1 cup GFCFSF Panko crumbs
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup GF flour

Starting with cold cheese, cut into sticks. You should get 14 from a package, depending on how big you cut them.

In one dish, place flour.
In another dish, beat egg.
In a third dish, place the panko/breadcrumbs

Working carefully, coat each cheese stick in flour, dust off excess. Dip in egg, then coat in crumbs. Place on a tray. Once complete, place pan in freezer for at about 30 mintues. This will adhere the coating so it doesn't slide off during cooking. These will stay fresh up to 6 months in the freezer, sealed in a ziploc bag.

To cook, heat oil (peanut has the highest burn tolerance but whatever oil you can tolerate is fine) to 375 degrees and fry about 3 minutes or until crispy and lightly browned.

Note: I wouldn't suggest baking these as Daiya doesn't have the congealers that dairy cheese does, so they basically melt into a pool.
