Fried Pancake battered Applewood smoked Gruyere cheese sticks.



My kids just absolutely “LOVED” these!! But, of course what kid doesn’t love anything that has to do with pancake batter and cheese?? This is basically only 3 things, pancake mix, sticks of applewood Gruyere and oil for frying!! If you add certain spices like I did well, then that make 4 or 5 ingredients but, really who’s counting? Hehe. Total kid friendly recipe and it’s as easy as frying it up or rolling it in some breadcrumbs and baking! Hope you guys “Enjoy”this deliciously cheesy “fried” goodness as much as we did. It’s a definite winner.

2 cups buttermilk pancake mix
1 cup water
2 tablespoons smoked paprika
( told ya I put it in EVERYTHING)
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 block applewood smoked Gruyere cheese cut into 12 sticks
Veg oil for frying
Cracked black pepper

In a deep fryer( which I do not currently own) or a med sized frying pan, add veg oil till just about mid way up the pan and heat on med high heat. Next, in a bowl, add pancake mix and water. Stir till combined and of thick consistency and add your spices including some ground black pepper. Then, dip each of your sticks into the batter and drop into the hot oil ( place a wooden utensil in the middle of the oil, if the oil starts to bubble around it then you know the oil is hot enough for frying) only add 3 cheese sticks at a time ( dropping to many at a time will drop the temp of the oil) . When all sides are golden brown and puffy, remove and place on a paper towel covered plate. Once all sticks are fried up, serve them on a platter with a side of warm “Applewood Smoked Bacon Mustard”!! YUMMM
