There are people who loves their food smoking hot, fresh the cooking pot or oven. There are people who loves their food warm. And there are people who loves their food at room temperature. I am one of those people. Not all food, I must say. Or not all the time. Hmm, most of the time.
I remember when my Mom used to cook rice and room temperature rice left for me, I always get in advance from the freshly cooked rice and put it in the fridge. 😀 I really don’t mind eating like that or drinking a room temperature tea. I always get that, anyway. 😛
One of the things I could eat at room temperature or even two days old are these cheese sticks.
I am not sure if this is popular in the Philippines, but I eat like mad when I make these. They are made by slicing cheddar cheese and adding a little condensed milk before wrapping them in spring roll wrappers, then fried to perfection. The cheese melts and flows out from the wrapper which creates bits of deliciousness outside. I could not eat much when condensed milk and cheese are together (migraine problem), but I don’t mind having one as long as I enjoy these. 😉 As for the dipping sauce, I use mixture of banana ketchup and mayonnaise… but mayo alone is okay. I always make batches and keep some for another two days. I always enjoy them even they are two days old. 🙂
- 30 spring roll wrappers
- 250 g cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup condensed milk
- Cooking oil
- Banana ketchup
- Combine banana ketchup and mayonnaise. Set aside in the fridge until ready to use.
- Slice cheese about 3 inches long. The thickness depends on you. I like mine a little thick.
- Place on top of the spring roll wrapper. Add about 1 tsp condensed milk and wrap. Repeat until you have used all your spring roll wrappers or your cheese.
- Fry until cooked.
- Serve with banana ketchup-mayonnaise dipping sauce.
You will notice that the cheese will melt and the condensed milk will flow. Just keep on frying and they will be okay at the end.
You may omit the condensed milk.
These can be served with only mayonnaise as your dipping sauce.
I hope you like my version of cheese sticks. Have a fun weekend to everyone! 😉
