Done Right: Hot Cheeto Cheese Sticks

Not going to lie, but our day jobs have been keeping us pretty busy outside the Glut-world lately. And we just wanna say sorry for the lack of updates but we gotta pay the bills, yah dig? N-E-Ways we’ve been sitting on a ton of post so expect some epic things to come. Starting off with this gem of a ‘Done Right’ Post.

Hot Cheetos crusted fried cheese sticks
Ok so I dont know about the rest of you guys, but Hot Cheetos have pretty much RULED my life since they came out. I seriously dont know what I’d do if they stopped making these things.  This is how bad things can get… Back in 2004 I moved to Brooklyn, and not many people know this but back then you couldn’t find Hot Cheetos up there. I had to beg my grandma to ship to me about once a week so I could get my fix. LOVE.YOU.GMA.

The idea for this post was pretty simple, folks…. I like fried Cheese, I like Hot Cheetos, Let’s combine the two and make some MAAAAAAGIC… Hot Cheetos crusted fried mozzarella sticks.

Hot cheetos in food processor

Ok first things first, ingredients .

  • $.99 Bag of Hot Cheetos, easy.(1 cup)
  • Brick of mozzarella chz, easy.
  • Panko Bread Crumbs, easy.(1 cup)
  • 2 eggs, easy.
  • Tabasco, easy.(how ever much you can take)

Pretty simple stuff. Now lets get to steps:
The first thing you want to do is to get your brick of mozzarella cheese and cut dem sticks to size. By the time we finished it looked like we had a lil’mozzarella Stonehenge going on.

Hot cheetos and panko ratio
Then Throw pretty much the entire bag of Hot Cheetos into a food processor and chop chop chop, chop it up. Once you’ve got it into crumbs, mix with the Panko in a 50/50 ratio  if you can dig the heat go 70/30.

Ok, now time to get it coated. Hope y’alls dont like gettin’ kinda messy cause this egg wash mess doesnt play. What you wanna do is go Cheese – Egg Wash – Panko & Hot Cheetos –  Egg Wash – Panko & Hot Cheetos.

Ohhhhhh yeh, I guess it would help if I  told ya’ goons  how to make our egg wash.

  • Crack two egg, place them into a bowl.
  • Add a couple of dashes of Tabasco and scramble the hell out of them.
  • That’s it. You’ve just made an egg wash. Congrats.

Hot Cheetos fried mozzarella
Ok time to get things a’cooking. You wanna fill your pan/pot/bucket/whatever you got about half way up and the heat up on your oil to  around 350 degrees Fahrenheit. With a pair of tongs place the sticks into the oil. Careful doe, with that hot oil You don’t wanna end up like ol’boy from RoboCop.

When they start floating and or 60 seconds comes up time to flip those birds and turn them over. Do the same thing on the other side and let them rest on a paper towel to soak up all that nassty. They should be all stringy and nice looking like the photo below. Don’t eat too many or it will make your poop hard. #truestory

    If you ever find the cheese melts through when you’re frying them just pop ’em in the freezer for 30-40 minutes then fry ’em. Class act recipe here though. Good sh*t!
