Ingredients
  • One 6-pack pepper jack snack sticks
  • 2 cups vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups crushed pretzels
  • Salsa, for serving, optional
Directions
  • Freeze the cheese sticks for at least 30 minutes.

  • Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a deep, heavy pot.

  • Set up a breading station with the flour and a pinch of salt and pepper in one pie pan; the beaten eggs in a second; and the pretzel crumbs in a third.

  • Dip each cheese stick in the flour, then in the egg wash, and then in the pretzels.

  • Carefully add the breaded cheese sticks to the hot oil and fry until dark golden brown all over, about 1 minute per side. Drain on a paper-towel-lined plate and immediately sprinkle with salt. Serve with salsa.
