Fried Pepper Jack Cheese Sticks

Fried Pepper Jack Cheese Sticks

Hey guys! Things are looking a little bit different around here today. How do you like my new digs?!? Ryan was finally able to get the blog redesign up and running yesterday and I couldn’t be happier! I keep telling him “It’s just so pretty!”

It’s also mobile. That means that when you look at it on your tablet or on your phone, it will adjust the size. No more pinching the screen to read the recipes. Nifty huh? It might be my favorite part.

I hope you all like it too. Please let me know what you think :)

And now on to these cheese sticks.

They are cheese. And they are fried. How can you go wrong?

The answer: You can’t really.

These cheese sticks are a little different then your traditional cheese sticks. First, I use pepper jack cheese sticks instead of mozzarella. Next, they are wrapped in a wonton wrapper before being fried. And finally, because every good cheese stick needs a good dipping sauce to go with it, I made a quick avocado dipping sauce to go with these.

I made them as a snack before we carved pumpkins yesterday and they were gone in .3210 seconds after Ryan finished taking the picture. They are that good and perfect for your game day snacks. Maybe I’ll make some again tonight so we can snack on them while we watch Hawks on Monday Night Football.

As if they would make it past kickoff…

Makes 10 Prep Time: Cook Time:

Fried Pepper Jack Cheese Sticks Ingredients:

  • 5 pepper jack cheese sticks, cut in half
  • 10 wonton wrappers
  • water
  • oil

Avocado Cream Recipe

  • 1 avocado, pitted and removed from skin
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • salt



To assemble the cheese sticks, place one of the halved cheese sticks on top of a wonton wrapper. Dip your finger in water and run it along the edges of the wrapper. Working away from you, fold the wonton wrapper over the cheese, fold the ends over the end of the cheese, continue rolling the cheese in the wrapper and fold the ends to close. Repeat with remaining ingredients, until you've made 10 cheese sticks.


Combine all of the ingredients for the avocado cream sauce in a food processor and process until smooth. Transfer to bowl and set aside until ready to use.


Heat oil in a pan over medium heat to 350 degrees. Fry sticks, in batches if necessary, until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle with salt. Serve immediately.

    Hi Des :-) Really, really want to try this recipe but need to know how many total ounces of cheese this calls for since my market doesn’t sell cheese sticks …

  • HI Deeli :) I looked on my package of cheese sticks and it seems like each cheese stick is about an ounce. Because I cut each one in half I’d say cut 5 ounces of cheese into 10 pieces. Hope this helps!

  • Oh those unicorn tears. Get me every time too! :) Thanks Megan!

  • Thank you!
