So, recently the snack Gods shined their light on me and I was blessed with an incredible gift box from Frito Lay, bursting at the seams with snack goodness! After I finished squealing with joy, I was able to semi-compose myself long enough to crack into the first bag I saw..The Sun Chips!
Ahhh, yes! Crispy, light & crunchy Parmesan and Herb Sun Chips. It was all I could do to maintain some pretense of self control and not inhale the entire bag. Luckily I was able to put enough aside to umm…FRY THEM UP! That’s right…I said ‘fry the Sun Chips’!
Oh Reeelax, I totally used them to coat some Cheese before I fried them…silly!
Did you ever think that fried cheese could get any better than it already is? I mean, Fah-Ried CHEESE people, the pinnacle of all snacks! I wouldn’t have believed it either, that is..until NOW!
These hot, ooey gooey Mozzarella Sticks are taken to the highest level possible with the crispy & flavorful, perfectly seasoned flavor of the Parmesan and Herb Sun Chips. These amazing Sun Chips are packed with 6 hearty grains that form the crunchiest & nuttiest coating around the cheese you can imagine! It’s amazing how these Sun Chips turn such a common snack into the tastiest, and crispiest fried cheese experience EVER! Plunging each hot, and melty stick deep into some warm Marinara is REQUIRED! I think it would actually be illegal in at least 27 States to not dip them in the Marinara..haha! 😉
You’ve GOT to make a batch for the next game, or any chance you have to get these into the mouths of your friends, family or willing strangers..LOL! They’re life changing!
What you’ll need for enough Fried Cheese to keep about 6-8 people happy for a loong time (or at least until half-time):
One full size bag (11.5 oz.) of Frito Lay Parmesan and Herb Sun Chips
1-16oz block of Mozzarella
1/2 Cup of Shredded Parmesan Cheese
Marinara for dipping..Ranch works great too!
Oil for frying
A food processor..OR lots of anger and a rolling pin! 😉
Add the chips into the processor and pulse until they’re a breadcrumb consistency..(you may need to do them in 2 batches depending on the size of your processor)
Add them to a large shallow bowl with the Shredded Parmesan and set them aside…
In another shallow bowl beat the 4 eggs.
Slice the Mozzarella into 4″x1/2″ strips…
Dip each cheese stick into the egg, making sure to let the excess egg drip off. Then into the crushed chips, coating evenly. Set them all aside. And repeat a second time with all of them…
Place the double dipped and coated sticks onto a baking sheet and put them into the freezer for 2 hours! (longer is fine too)..
Heat up about 3″ of oil and start frying them up a few at a time, making sure they’re golden on all sides (about 30-ish seconds or so) The smell of fried Sun Chips is beyonddd incredible!
Take a second to gaze at their beauty..
Serve them up hot, with some Saucey Marinara to plunge them into!
Claim yours before leaving the kitchen..you deserve it! ~Enjoy!
