Ruby Tuesday Copycat Recipe
12 (1 oz) sticks string cheese
2 1/2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs
2 cups vegetable oil for frying
Remove string cheese sticks from plastic wrappings and cut the strings in half crosswise. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place eggs in a bowl and bread crumbs into a large shallow bowl. Dip cheese stick halves into egg and roll in bread crumbs to completely coat the sticks; place breaded cheese sticks onto the prepared baking sheet.
Allow cheese sticks to stand at room temperature for about 5 minutes to set, and repeat dipping in egg and bread crumbs to form a thick coating. Freeze breaded cheese sticks for at least 2 hours.
Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees. Deep fry cheese sticks, a few at a time, until the coating is golden brown and crisp and the cheese is soft, 5 to 8 minutes. Let sticks drain on paper towels; cool slightly and serve warm.
