  • 2 quarts oil for frying
  • 1 bag (8 1/2 ounces) Flamin’ Hot Cheetos crushed into crumbs
  • 2 cups plus 1/2 tablespoon flour
  • 5 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 squares of cheese with a low melt point like Cheddar, Fontina, Gruyère or mozzarella
  • 4 mozzarella cheese sticks
  • 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese shredded


  • Heat oil in deep fryer or heavy skillet to 375°F.
  • Set up a dredging station with three bowls — 2 cups flour in the first one, beaten eggs and 1/2 cup milk in the second one and crushed Flamin’ Hot Cheetos in the third one.
  • Coat each cheese square and mozzarella stick in flour, submerge in egg wash and cover in Flamin' Hot Cheetos. Repeat this step a second time if necessary.
  • Deep fry for 45 seconds and drain on paper towels.
  • In a sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat and stir in 1/2 tablespoon flour. Add 1/4 cup milk and reduce heat to low. Stir in shredded cheese slowly until melted.
  • Assemble sandwiches by placing one of your deep fried cheese squares on a plate and topping it with mozzarella sticks, meted Cheddar and finally the second deep fried cheese square.
