Cheese On A Stick

(by Natalie Bross)

(adapted from The Pioneer Woman)

6 c. Krusteaz pancake mix 2 c. yellow cornmeal 2 eggs, slightly beaten 4 - 6 c. water (more if needed to thin batter) cheese (American or your favorite) cut Into 1/2-in. x 3 in. sticks canola oil spicy mustard **USE CAUTION WHEN FRYING WITH OIL. KEEP POT ON THE BACK BURNER TO PROTECT SMALL KIDDOS**

In a large bowl, combine pancake mix and cornmeal. Stir in eggs and water, starting with 4 cups, adding more water as needed for batter to become slightly thick (but not overly gloppy.) Insert cheese onto chopsticks so that they're 2/3 of the way through. Heat canola oil in a deep pot over medium-high heat.

Drop in a bit of batter, which should immediately start to sizzle but should not brown or burn. Dip the cheese sticks into the batter and allow excess to drip off for a couple of seconds.

Carefully drop each stick into the oil (stick and all), using tongs or a spoon to make sure it doesn't hit the bottom of the pan.

Flip occasionally to ensure even browning.

Remove from oil when the outside is deep golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Serve with spicy mustard.
