‘The Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond Cheese on a Stick Recipe

<p><a href="https://ift.tt/PspL26Q Pioneer Woman</a> is a big fan of cheese. <a href="https://ift.tt/QoAKwjC Drummond</a> recently showed home cooks how to make her recipe for cheese on a stick. Read on for instructions on how to make this popular state fair snack.</p> <h2>Ree Drummond’s cheese on a stick</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image size-custom-image-1200"><img loading="lazy" width="3000" height="2000" src="https://ift.tt/NkzKJtQ" alt="Ree Drummond on the Today show." class="wp-image-3134313" srcset="https://ift.tt/L9K2Z7O 3000w, https://ift.tt/vfiXVkc 150w, https://ift.tt/3VwvJtl 640w, https://ift.tt/53oMJXD 768w, https://ift.tt/P0JdXzl 1024w, https://ift.tt/Jj7AN9D 1536w, https://ift.tt/Te0Q5hu 2048w, https://ift.tt/PTuapk4 1200w, https://ift.tt/AZhwbG9 90w" sizes="(max-width: 3000px) 100vw, 3000px" /><figcaption>The Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond | Tyler Essary/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images</figcaption></figure> <p>Drummond starts by making a batter to <a href="https://ift.tt/B2bslKi the cheese in</a>. “What better thing to use than pancake mix?” asks Drummond during <em><a href="https://ift.tt/cO9ej0X Pioneer Woman </a></em><a href="https://ift.tt/fdUoy9e>. She adds one cup of yellow cornmeal to two cups of pancake mix. She also adds a pinch of salt, three cups of cold water, and one beaten egg.</p> <p>“Whether you’re frying chocolate sandwich cookies, or cheese, or hot dogs, and making corn dogs, this is such a great batter to use,” says Drummond.</p> <h2>Preparing the cheese sticks</h2> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-video is-provider-youtube wp-block-embed-youtube wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <div class="jetpack-video-wrapper"><iframe loading="lazy" title="Ree Drummond's Garlic and Herb Mozzarella Sticks | The Pioneer Woman | Food Network" width="925" height="520" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/iSBguc5fhAU?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> </div></figure> <p>For the next step, Drummond sticks a wooden skewer all the way through a small block of cheese. She says pushing the skewer to the end of the block of cheese provides “plenty of structure.”</p> <p>Before Drummond fries the cheese, she checks the temperature of the oil that she has heating in a pan. She scoops a small amount of mixture into a spoon and dips it in the oil. Once she sees the oil bubble up, she knows she can start frying the cheese sticks.</p> <p>Drummond starts by dipping the first cheese block into the batter, making sure to get as much of the mixture on the cheese as possible. “I’m going to bring the bowl over because this needs to go straight into the oil immediately,” says Drummond. She then drops the entire cheese and stick into the pan of hot oil.</p> <p>“I just use a spoon to start spooning [the oil] to the other side,” she explains. “Just so that the batter doesn’t escape because that batter tends to want to escape and go elsewhere.”</p> <p>Drummond says you don’t have to worry about how the cheese sticks look because each one will look different. “No cheese on a stick is supposed to look like the others. They all have a unique look about them.”</p> <p>Once the first side of the cheese stick is fried, Drummond takes a pair of tongs and flips it over to the other side. She says you want to make sure you don’t keep the cheese in the oil too long because the cheese will start to melt.</p> <p>“You want to get them fried before the cheese starts to melt,” says Drummond. “So, you want the batter to be done on the outside before the cheese starts to ooze out. At the state fair, they have huge vats of oil, and they just drop it in, but we have limitations here on <a href="https://ift.tt/HGb0f9M Drummond ranch</a>.”</p> <h2 id="h-the-finishing-touch">The finishing touch</h2> <p>Once the cheese sticks are fried on both sides, Drummond places them on a paper-towel-lined sheet pan. The paper towel helps soak up the oil from the cheese sticks. Paige was impressed with the way the cheese on the stick recipe came out. “Mom, you really outdid yourself,” she says.</p> <p>For the next step, Drummond places marinara sauce in a small bowl. This serves as the dipping sauce for the cheese sticks.
