Skinny Sal’s Fried Pepper Jack Cheese Sticks

Skinny Sal’s Fried Pepper Jack Cheese Sticks

My partner and I have our favorite sushi restaurant that we go to and just pig out in. One of my favorite things there is their Pepper Jack Cheese Sticks. Man, I could eat those all day if I had the time. However, going there all the time ain’t cheap! That’s why I decided to make them at home. Plus, I get to make them a little healthier, but they hit the spot just as much, combining a recipe I found on this keto website. This recipe hits the spot just as much, if not moreso.
